Great Value and a most pleasant dining experience.

The service and food was excellent, well complemented by the decor and the soft background music. We have returned a couple of times and will definitely go again.

We went with my wife on a Sunday evening. The service is excellent and the atmosphere let you expect some very fine cuisine. But the first disappointment came when I ordered a glass of wine. Instead of using the nice large glasses already on the table, the waiter puts in front of me a tiny glass and fills it up.... More

A colleague and I were looking for somewhere to enjoy an evening meal. Whilst most of the other cafes looked busy, and this one had no-one in it at the time, I did look inviting with it's well-set tables and white-linen table clothes (everywhere else just had bare tables). So we decided to take a chance. We were not disappointed,... More

The food was absolutely amazing! My husband and I shared the gnocchi for entree and it was so good. Melt in your mouth! Our mains were just as good - steak and veal. And the pannacotta for dessert was also amazing! The staff were really friendly. Would definitely go back again!

My partner and I visited on NYE for a nice dinner. When we arrived we were seated straight away and our menus arrived shortly after that. Apart from the menu all sounding divine, there wasn't much choice. However, my partner had the chicken and I had the veal and both meals were excellent. The staff were great, only wished they...

Very good food, great service - even on a busy new years day. Fairly reasonably priced for a wholesome romantic dinner for two.

Not the dinner that I was expecting. The bruschetta I ordered was way too salty. I ordered the gnocchi and it came out undercooked. So I left not having really had any dinner. My partners food wasn't too bad, not great either though. My advice, go somewhere else
