Went with friends and was ashamed I took them there. Bad service, the staff know NOTHING about Italian food, can't even pronounce it properly. Awful cheap plonk masquerading as good wine. Don't start me on the meal. We all left it and went to a chip shop later. This is not Italian food.

Have been a few times over the past few weeks - absolutely brilliant service, food, and cost! First time, went in (un-arranged) with 5 others (6 in total), seated immediately. Browsed the very Italian menu, and decided on the Lunch deal - Starter and Main for £6.95, or just Main for £3.95! I decided on the Lasagne and Chips -... More

Excellent meals for all of us off the special two-course menu, great value. This review would be longer but trip advisor software fell over and this is second time around.

Neighbourhood "Italian" restaurants have a reputation for being unpretentious providers of good value food. This establishment isn't one of them. Having been influenced by the good reviews I gave it a try for an early evening meal. What we found foodwise was meanly topped soggy bottomed pizza and an escalope of veal so small it need the vegetables dumped on... More

I ordered off-menu with a chicken salad, which was very tasty as the chicken had been cooked in white wine. My only criticism is that at £13.50 it was a little more than I had anticipated spending. The pizzas looked incredible and are very reasonable so I suppose the lesson for me is forget the diet and go for pizza... More

Went here with a KGB voucher for two pizzas and two glasses of wine. The service was friendly and the pizzas were huge and lived up to their previous high praise on here. Contrary to some reviews of the house wine, the white we had was very drinkable! If I were to suggest any improvement, it would be that they... More

We went her as a family of four with a voucher deal. Beforehand I thought it was cheap enough and even though I had heard it was 'so so' at best (one report first hand from my wife) I thought it was worth a go. We we were all pleasantly surprised by what we saw and what we had to... More

We had heard mixed reviews about this place. We had nothing to worry about, the meal itself was fabulous, very tasty, piping hot and it took just the right amount of time to know it was cooked freshly. The service was excellent , proper little I'm
