If you want a little a ray of sunshine in the middle of a dull day, then you only need to pop in at lunchtime and your cares will drift away.

This restaurant gives free garlic bead pre-starter to most - but not all – customers. On our recent visit we were surrounded by diners being given free garlic bread but not us. When I complained the waiter said they gave the garlic bread to regular customers only. When I punted out we had been customers since it first opened they... More

Another outstanding meal!! We both had calamari to start which was cooked to perfection and comes with a lovely fresh salad and a dip. I normally avoid salads at all costs but never here because it's fresh. I had surf and turf as a main meal which was cooked to perfection and piping hot - I asked for the meat... More

About 12 of us tried to go out for a meal on a Saturday without pre-booking. After trying a number of other places we finally got in here. The Waiters and waitresses buzzed around the place making sure everyone was happy and you could see some people where obviously regular customers and had good relationships with the staff. The food... More

Have been here before, but not for a long time. We were greeted with a smile and were seated in a window seat. Almost immediately we were given garlic bread, dips and olives. We both had starters, I opted for prawns with melon and my husband prawns with avocado, both very nice. I can't remember the Italian names of these... More
