Good classic Italian cooking

This is an Italian that it traditional rather than one of the modern 'we focus on pizza and pasta affairs'. The food was all good, tasty and wholesome - classic Italian home-style cooking and was enjoyed by the whole group.

Food was good and there was a wide choice on menu. Service average, a bit on slow side. The decor was very nice.

Firstly the experience you get from this restuarant depends where you are seated. If I was seated downstairs first visit I would never of returned, unless you like being served by the owners wife who from what she says hates him. Dark atmosphereless basement isn't great. Get a seat upstairs and it is the best night you will have ever.... More

Service was good, on what was a quiet mid week visit. I had the pork ribs in a sauce, and my wife had the salmon parcels. For the main meal my wife... More

This was a nice restaurant and the staff were very friendly but I found the food a bit bland. The Marie Rose sauce for the smoked salmon cornets could have done with some tabasco and the spaghetti carbonara needed black pepper and quite a lot of parmesan added. But otherwise a nice location and very convenient for an event at... More

Really good wine and food, with great service and a lovely feeling to the place. I've eaten here many times and never been disappointed, whether as a couple or as a party.
