We came here for a family birthday celebration on a busy Friday evening, from start to finish the service we received was amazing, both the waiter and waitress were very helpful and efficient. The food was lovely, well presented and piping hot when it came to the table. The staff made the party an enjoyable experience and we look forward... More

Arrived and told table would take 15 minutes, taken to bar for a drink and had to wait 10 mins before being served. Thirty five minutes before being taken to table. Meantime a number of people came and left as they were kept waiting while tables were empty. Lots of people complaining about service. In my opinion not enough staff... More

In a bit of a rush to get to the cinema for date night. Told this to our waitress Katie and she got our drinks order straight away and made sure our food arrived quickly. The food was good and the service was excellent tonight :)

The service was poor. Waitresses never really seemed keen on helping us or taking our order. Food was bought to us after a very long time of waiting despite it being available to serve on the shelf. They were more attentive when we asked for the bill. Never going back. Worst experience ever.

Great place to go if you are wanting to eat before a football game at Portman Road. Or a film at cineworld. Safe menu to choose from, no surprises! Reasonably priced also. If it's a game day it does get busy.

a very big complex however not much atmosphere staff are clingy and a bit too friendly I like space when I eat without someone coming over every 10 seconds - this will not increase your chance of a tip as I will get irritated food is nice but not fantastic

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.
