Joined 14 friends - yes, party of 15! - for dinner, 8.30pm. We were all seated in our own area for arrival drinks, and served nibbles while we per used the menus. The place was pretty busy with local folk, a good buzz about the place. The decor is not your usual swank but good atmosphere nevertheless. We all went... More

We only recently found out about this restaurant when my daughter moved to the area. From the outside it is very unasuming but inside the atmosphere is very different. You are welcomed by staff that actually look pleased to see you and the service and food is excellent.

Have not been here for sometime. Pascal has the whole building now moving the restaurant into what was the bar. It is has been tastefully refurbished and produces a great atmosphere. This is authentic Italian, I am talking Italian owner, chefs and waiting staff ! Food is great and service is spot on. Definitely one of my favourite restaurants.

Myself and my husband went for a birthday meal with my parents. The restaurant was very busy and we had to wait for our table, but the staff could not have been more apologetic. The meal itself was lovely, my mum was especially impressed with the black pudding said it was the best she had ever tasted. All the food... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant and were very impressed with the welcome we received. The décor is very nice. We shared two pizza bread tasty. We each had different main courses which were exceptional. We all finished with coffee. A very enjoyable evening. The only thing we felt down with was that we felt rushed between courses.... More
