Having lived in Bolton for 35+ years and driven past here more times that I can recall, thought it was time to try it. The menu is extensive and takes some time to read in full but I always head to the meat! My girlfriend chose the fried Brie to start and I went with the chicken livers.......both tasty and... More

When there is such a lack of decent restaurants in Bolton, it never ceases to amaze me when restaurants with such potential get it so wrong. This place is lovely - amazing location and beautifully decorated. However the standard of food is just OK and the staff, although very friendly, lack proper waiting-on skills. It's trying too hard to be... More

Been here probably six times since it's changed hands and must say what a massive improvement it is. Been consistently brilliant on starters and mains but our only gripe is a varying quality on dessert - the first time we had the torta della nona it was spectacular but every time since it's been rubbish - if they'd kept up...

The food was not as good as it was when I went previously, they seemed to have crammed to many people in but perhaps we just got a bad night. They now have a range of gluten free meals and as I have just found out I'm gluten intolerant I was very pleased. I would definitely go again and give... More
