What a great restaurant! The food was fantastic, full of flavour and cooked to perfection! Even though the restaurant was very busy, we were not left waiting for our meals and the owner/manageress made time to come over and make sure everything was ok. I could not fault it at all and the atmosphere was great. We will certainly be... More

We were seated promptly and in the back half of the restaurant, it was quite full and there was a lot of chatter\noise, but it wasn't distracting or off-putting. The owner (I believe he was the owner at least) was walking around from table... More

The atmosphere is nice and the layout is definitely interesting. However the food is lacking that flavour. We haven't been back since, but I would like to go back and try again just incase it was a one time bad experience. I love Italian food!

This event was a surprise birthday party for me and this was an ideal place for it....big table, busy fun atmosphere, efficient and friendly staff. The food was typical "Italian" based style and tasty, filling and good value. I've been there before and would suggest t to others for a fun good value venue. Cheers

It had a great menu and food was yummy. Favourite was the pizza bread. Service was quick and efficient. Great place to take your partner or the family depending on the time of night.
