We have eaten here in the past and found it OK. However, we decided to eat a bit later last night and went here. We arrived at 9pm. We had not booked but it was less than half full. Straight away a waitress came over and announced they were closed. Very strange. Closed at 9 pm?, very poor and not... More

Never in over 8 years have I had had bad food or bad service from these people. The staff are great and the food is hot fresh and scrummy.

Although tempted to walk out after this rude welcome, our hunger overcame us. The food was fabulous and the service attentive if a bit brusque. The pasta and pizza... More

My wife and I enjoyed a meal here last night, both having the lasagna, garlic bread and chips followed by fudge cake and ice cream and coffee. The welcome was warm and we were unhurried through our meal. The meal was tasty and we will return on our next visit. If I was to complain it would be the price... More

Like me, if you've a lack of time and are extremely hungry I would suggest this lovely, laid back restaurant.

The staff were extremely friendly and the food was good hearty Italian... More
