Enjoyed a visit to Diva but I don't understand how it has such a high rating on this site as it is rather average. The decor isn't welcoming, I felt as if I was in a cafe rather than a top rated restaurant. Service was good with two pleasant waitresses serving our table of eight. The food was ok but... More

Nothing was too much trouble for the staff in this intimate but friendly restaurant. The freshly cooked food and wine was delicious and we were even served a free after dinner home-made Limoncello by the chef himself! What service!!

Lovely fresh food, we had starters of mussels and crab cakes followed by Linguini with plenty of scallops and asparagus, and pasta stuffed with mussels, prawns, clams and squid. Though totally satiated still made room for home-made Italian ice cream. Definitely will be going back.

Great tiramisu at this place! The mains were acceptable although the sea bass was quite expensive for the actual quality of dish we were served.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Small restaurant and our only negative was that the tables were very close together. Really enjoyed the chicken wrapped in smoked salmon & my husband thoroughly enjoyed the veal.

Recommend booking a table. Arrived at the time table booked. Had to wait fifteen minutes before being asked if we would like a drink. Maybe it was the location of the table. The two girls waiting tables were very busy. The food was delicious and so well cooked. It appeared that all other tables were offered Limonceli, for some reason... More
