If food, then yes, it was a lovely place for five friends to sit and reminisce about life and adventure. Service was prompt, appropriate. The flavours were well blended and the portions felt like they were coming from mum's kitchen! Most generous. Not difficult on the wallet at all! If decor, then walk on by, it felt crowded and claustrophobic.

Alex and his team do a great job. Accommodating you the best they can. The place is always busy. The chef is willing to adapt things for you. I absolutely love the place. a good little find just tucked away a little way off the high street.

A hidden gem of an Italian Restaurant. A slice of Italy inside. Plants and vines winding up and across beams/struts. Small but homely inside. Only disappointment was we couldn't get the bill as it was busy.

The Capuccino bar is always full and you need to book ahead especially in the evening because the mix of great value really delicious food and substantial portions with warm and friendly service is a winner. We go back time and again and has never had one cause for complaint. Highly recommended. Great for the family or a friends night... More

Went with husband who lived in Italy for a number of years so expectation of italian food is high, not unrealistic, but high. I was pleasantly surprised, good food, good service, good price, nothing at all to complain about. Husband wouldn't return though, although not expensive he believes you can get better quality, his pizza was his main problem, a... More

This restaurant is hard to beat. Quality of food, service and atmosphere is all top notch. Only issue is cramping when the place is really busy. At peak times, you might find your chair touching the chair of someone behind you. In these circumstances, you either have to put off a visit for a comfort break, or get on friendly... More

Having previously eaten at this restaurant several times, we had booked a table for 4 people. On arrival I was told the booking had mistakenly been written in the diary for the previous evening and could we come back in 30 minutes to see if a table was free. This was extremely poor customer service and although we accept that... More
