We were meeting friends for dinner as it was my birthday so popped in to book but was told - just turn up it'll be fine. So we did and we had to queue for about half an hour! The queue was cramped because it was outside the toilets and people were constantly pushing past - it was ok but... More

love This place, the staff are so warm and welcoming. I had the pizza and it was a real Italian pizza as made in Rome. The pasta and other dishes I would also highly recommend. A perfect place for a meal with friends or loved ones. You must go highly recommended can't wait for my next visit.

food is cheap and basic, my pizza was burned round the edges and the waiter said 'it was fine' and I had to badger another waiter to get my a new pizza, I wasn't paying for all the crust to be char-grilled. The 'salad' is awful, even though it is free, I wouldn't never eat it, limp lettuce and tasteless... More

Had a long wait to get in as it was quite full. Service was fast and attentive despite being busy. Food was served fast and piping hot and it was delicious!

Many stairs to ascend to get to this bustling restaurant ( only 7 weeks after broken leg!). First impression was of quirky but nice decor but unnecessarily loud music. Service was great and took advice about white wine which was lovely. Food is better than average Italian with a lot of garlic! We had 2 different pasta dishes, a pizza... More
