Great food - delicious pasta and meatballs. Wine was great too. Wonderful atmosphere and the music from the live singer (female) was amazing. Plus the many lemon cello after hours! Highly recommend. Staff are super friendly and so wonderfully welcoming. Five stars!!!

I ordered a grilled aubergine and cherry tomato pizza (Siciliana I think it was called) which arrived with only one cherry tomato on it. Odd. There was also weird atmosphere with our waitress seeming very irritated by us for no apparent reason! Quite a bizarre experience really...

Have been here once before, it was at the end of the evening as they were winding down but they let us in, were very accommodating and the food was really good. So we thought we'd give it another...

Went for dinner with a couple of work friends before my night shift and chose to have the mushroom starter, sitting in a puddle of water. It was truly horrible. I then went on to have the macaroni cheese and cheesy garlic bread. The garlic bread was really nice and reminded me of pizza express. The macaroni cheese on the... More

My heart sank when first handed the tatty dirty menu, which probably hadn't been changed since they opened (apart from the prices.) Old school dishes, nothing imaginative. The previous reviewer who described it as 'awesome gourmet Italian food' can't have been in the same restaurant as me. The ingredients quality was poor, the waiter rude and grumpy, a bottle of...
