We have eaten here many times now and the food is always consistently good - we've never had a bad meal. Price wise, I feel it offers good value for money, although like many places, I feel the desserts are overpriced, so very rarely have one (hence my rating as very good instead of excellent). The staff are always courteous... More

Love this place! Love the food and the service. The food always tastes fresh and very authentic. There is nothing pretentious about this place - it is all about good honest, tasy Italian food.

Food was excellent, made very welcome by the staff who weren't pushy. Which topped off nicely a lovely birthday day for Jayne. So much so we're coming back with our friends on 4 July

Great Italian food and lovely friend service. I am a regular! House wine very reasonably priced. Great for family meal out but book well in advance.

Have visited lots of times. Both for lunch and dinner. Excellent lunch menu and not expensive. Evening you will probably have to book. Food and service are both great. Would highly recommend it
