Garlic

The size off the leg of lamb was huge. The accompanying mash and vegetables great - but one thing was missing - bear in mind this is an Italian restaurant - I found no trace of garlic! The salad couldn't have been fresher. The service excellent, a good place to visit if you don't care about... read more

I went here on the recommendation of a friend but found the food to be pretty uninteresting and oversalted. Will not return and can't recommend.
