I wasn't at all keen on the visit and it has deterred us from visiting again. The spaghetti bol. Wasn't very tasty and tasted almost like it was out of a tin.

I've been several times to this usually excellent little Italian but yesterday was a real let down. - service was painfully slow even though it was virtually empty - Friday night and no atmosphere - I suppose it was empty! - hot food served on cold plates - when this was mentioned to the very young inexperienced waiting staff she...

A party of 11 of us went to celebrate my dads retirement and we enjoyed every minute. Food, service and atmosphere great. Nothing too much trouble for staff and they made the night special for my dad.

Excellent pizza, wine and overall ambiance of the cute, traditional Italian Restaurant. The best Olives, house wine and pizza I have ever had. Very friendly stuff, but mainly the owner Salvatore, he was knowledgable about the menu and he was able to customise any dish to my friend who is vegan. I will definitely go back and recommended. I know... More

This place is really fun. Although small and single-roomed, it pack in lively guests, delicious pizza, great wine, a jovial atmosphere and the odd outbreak of birthday singing - all presided over by Bon-Vivant owner Salvo who appears to be very well known by each of the diners. Great value too, and placed usefully right next to the main bar... More
