Reasonably priced, we had four starters, four mains, bottle of wine, three beers and special coffee for £90. Food didn't blow my socks off have had... read more

Probably the best antipasti I've ever had. Also one of the top Amarones I've tasted. All the wines seemed well priced and sourced as did the ingredients. Only downside was how loud and childish some of the other patrons were but the restaraunt isn't to blame on that front.

This is a local Italian restaurant that is streets better than any city restaurant. The staff are all superb and attentive. Menu has plenty of choice. Food is really excellent, I had calamari and it was the best I have ever had. Followed with a chicken and mushroom sauce plus tagliatelle. Tagliatelle is not on the menu, but ask for... More

Another great meal. This place is always packed out so it helps to have a reservation. The wait was a little long in between the starter and the mains, but apart from that everything else was amazing I would recommend the ribs as a starter!

Reasonably priced, if rather limited menu for an Italian restaurant. Attentive service, despite forgetting to bring one of the meals - although this was very quickly rectified! Food generally of good quality, although the chicken breast was a bit on the dry side. Very clean, modern interior and pleasant ambience.

We booked a table for 7.30 on a Sunday night.. Very busy and waited until after 8.00 for the table. My wife and I are creatures of habit and start with ribs and move to lasagne for the main course. We were bitterly disappointed with the Lasagne, it was sloppy without any body to the pasta, burnt on the top... More
