We've visited this restaurant many times over the years and it was fantastic in the early days. However, it has become a victim of its own success. The apparent push to increase revenues and improve margins has damaged quality and presentation, although the friendly service is still there. Much recent investment in expanding the restaurant has made it a little... More

Five us nipped in just before the busy lunch time on Sunday and were seated right away. Friendly staff, fresh water refilled promptly. We all opted for a soup and panini which was delicious. I thought they had a goog choice and reasonably priced. Was pleasantly surprised.

I said I would not return based on the fact that a lot of the food seems re heated and also on one occasion I ordered herbal fruit tea which I thought sounded lovely judging by description on menu and I received a cup and a small teapot with just boiling water in it. Took me forever to get attention... More

Dear Pippy, Thank you for your review. You raised some important points and I’m grateful to hear your feedback. I appreciate your thoughts on keeping families together in the restaurant. While I do take your point, unfortunately it is just not feasible to seat families with kids together all the time. We are a family friendly restaurant and children are... More

Great location, superb attentive staff and excellent food. Really busy (as normal) did not have to wait too long, service was very good. Food was perfect in portion and quality. Price could be more competitive, but is still good value.

We visit regularly because we are always looked after well - in particular by Monica - from a full meal to coffee and a snack this is true Italian cuisine which never fails to please. The specials are exceptionally tasty and change daily which means there is something new to try every visit if you like to try different dishes.... More
