lively atmosphere-not for a romantic night out.

This is a very noisy, very lively restaurant. If your wanting a quiet romantic meal for 2, then avoid, or at least avoid fridays or saturdays. The staff are friendly and helpfull-however...they are also rubbish at their jobs. There is no organisation, no understanding of specific orders, wrong... read more

Taken here by friends yesterday (Saturday) evening! It was crowded with take-aways being picked up and a full house and hopeful customers being turned away. We managed to get in early enough. The food was plentiful, hot and very tasty with the smell of garlic and tomato and cheese drifting through the restaurant. The staff didn't have time to be... More

I went here for an early booking on New Year's Eve (We managed to book a table for two people two days before!) and was seated right next to the radiator on a cold night which was a bonus! Also got a cracker on our table for the festive period which was a nice touch. We ordered the special parma... More

Went for dinner on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed the food, I had the chicken in Gorgonzola sauce and although a little dry was still lovely. Although I had noticed many reviews about the staff being grumpy they seemed in quiet a pleasant mood. Must of caught them on a good day. Over all a pleasant experience

Visited Sunday tea time. Walked straight in and was immediately seated. Service was swift. Food was devine. Staff were their usual helpful but grumpy selves. People have said about the staff being grumpy, that's just how they are. Hardly anyone in which spoiled it for me a touch because unlike others I love it when there's a good crowd in... More

Went here with friends as fancied Italian for our night out. There were several birthday parties going on as the happy birthday song was played several times with the sparkling items coming out. With this the place was loud and we struggled to hear ourselves and even worse the waiter. The menu was good in variety and not over priced.... More

Great atmosphere, average food. If you are looking for a lively night with a boisterous atmosphere this is very good, however don’t expect brilliant food. I would describe the food as average. We had eight in our party, six came to the same conclusion, and two felt the food was good.
