Vited withbfriends a couple of months ago and found the food excellent. Staff very friendly and helpful. Being allowed to bring your own wine is great especially whe one likes a specific wine to enjoy with their meal. We go back there at least once a month. Highly recommended.

I went here with a group for a college Christmas party a few years ago. I had pasta and the sauce tasted like a jar of Dolmio, really didn't taste homemade. We were rushed out of there just after dessert, even though it wasn't that busy and we were not causing any problems. They were quite rude about it. Then... More

Me and my wife come here all the time and we have never been disappointed. The restaurant itself is very well laid out and it is absolutely spotless. The staff are very friendly and always do what they can to help. The portion sizes and prices are very reasonable. The food is delicious and we'll worth a visit.

Great food served up by friendly staff in an exceptional atmosphere. I had steak risotto for my main course and it could not be faulted. I will certainly be going back to this gem of a restaurant !

I don't like here. I've been twice. I gave it a second chance and still didnt like it. The last time I had pizza and it wasn't nice. My mother has been a few times and always feels sick afterwards so we won't be returning again. The decor and atmosphere inside the restaurant is nice though.

We ate here on Valentine's. Food and service excellent - just the right amount of time between courses. Enjoyed being able to relax, talk and enjoy our meal without a time by which to be finished which some restaurants ensure - especially on busy dates such as Valentine's! Pizzas and Pasta dishes are excellent

Portions are good, food was tasty, pizza was pretty delicious. None of our party had any complaints, it's a nice friendly place and the pub next door had live music 2 minutes walk away after our meal - just the job!
