Actually shocked. Had an unpleasant visit due to the customer service (or lack of) - so I decided to e-mail the owner in order to sort this out and give constructive criticism so hopefully no one else would be deterred because of this. Got the most immature, unfriendly reply back. Genuinely shocked and disgusted at this manner of replying to... More

First time we've been here for a few years. Food was excellent - tasted very fresh. Menu looks like it's changed regularly but is limited. This is the first time I've been to an Italian restaurant and not been able to choose lasagne! Food was worth five stars but I still find the staff to be very efficient and not... More

Is it fair to review a restaurant when it's packed full on Mothers Day, well yes why not if the restaurant takes the bookings they need to be able to cope and Bulogna not only coped but did so handsomely. Having been here two or three times previously I knew what to expect - good food, good service and excellent... More

Love love love this restaurant! Food is excellent. Love how they serve pizza now - my kids are very happy. My all time favourite meal is on the menu - penne Gorgonzola with salmon (yum!). A great family run restaurant in a beautiful setting and even a play area for the kids that you can see from your table. The... More

Went here on Monday 2nd March on a Groupon deal. The whole experience was fantastic, food, service, location and atmosphere. All great. Would like to thank Marco for his help, willingness and customer service that certainly helped us enjoy our day. Really lovely enjoyable experience.

We have visited this restaurant many times now, the food is brilliant, I always have something different and my partner always has the same and not once have we been disappointed.

Took advantage of a groupon deal and enjoyed a nice lunch. Polite professional staff. Good food and great value for money. They do a similar lunch deal without the groupon voucher if you prefer. Will be back!!
