Very good food, friendly and informal staff who are always in for a joke. The owner is very flexible in accommodating his clients and the general atmosphere is fantastic, it feels like you've stepped in a time machine, back to the '20s-30s-40s'-ish. Absolutely love it.

I took a group of my colleagues here for a team dinner. I have been to this restaurant in the past. The food was ok, but on reflection the reason I rated the Restaurant as average were the following 1. The waiter questioned what I was ordering and came across with a very condescending attitude. This really annoyed me. I... More

I typically come here on business. Was seated at 6 despite not having a reservation. However, the place soon filled up. The service was excellent and prompt. I would recommend the Calamari starter and the Cote de L'os although our Antipasti starter was nothing special. The bread was tasty and freely toped up. Choice of wines are very broad. Overall...

Excellent Italian food, good service, the only problem is too crowded and no privacy for discussions, tables are too near one another. Go for the food, you won't regret it

It didn't quite look the real deal, and a lot of their mains seemed to have a line through them. However when we asked for something off the menu he said he would... More

We loved the food. This place has an open kitchen which we do like because you can see how fresh everything is cooked and also how clean the they work. For me this gives me much more confidence about a restaurant which is deserved. I had a fish ravioli with Gambas and very nice sauce which was really great. Waiter... More
