A really nice choice if you like Italian food, or a nice steak or a burger. It is not too expensive, and they also make a very decent breakfast. Very well located in Cardinal Park, Ipswich.

I was taken here for a celebration dinner. I have eaten here on many occasions and the quality never differs. Always great service with lovely staff and food that looks just like the menu. Long may this continue. Thanks to all the hard working staff that make it worthwhile.

Avoid if you actually want serving. They aren't very good at it. Waited and waited, but sadly they were too inept to keep us form getting up and leaving.
