There were also several items of which they did not have stock, calamari, prawns which is unforgiving when charging these prices. The also don't accurately indicate which dishes contains nuts, even when we explicitly explained the to the waiter that my cousin has a severe nut... More

Once again a wonderful lunch was had by all. Does not help telling you about it, you have to experience it for yourself. Definitely a bucket list candidate.

The ambiance is a little lacking. Wine list is expensive. Food is a bit on the pricey side. Fantastic food. Friendly service, but a little slow on the night we were there. i would definitely go back.

Not a great place but not bad. Nice atmosphere inside and a decent range of options on the menu although not in the slightest bit Italian. Between us we had meatballs, pizza, seafood stew, tagliatelle and risotto. All went down well but nothing to write home about. Not really worth the above average price. Waiter did that annoying thing of... More
