We booked a table for sat 20th Dec for four, it was welcoming unrushed and comfortable. The food was presented very well and was cooked to perfection. The menu was varied with a substancial choice. We all thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Absolutely superb..

I took my elderly mother here with some friends for her 92nd birthday, It was most memorable. The staff were very attentive, yet not at all intrusive. They even played Happy Birthday on the piano for my mother - she loved it. The food was fabulous too and all the guests are still talking about how much they enjoyed it.

Really spot-on Italian food in lovely surroundings with a wood-burning stove! All the classic Italian dishes - veal, calves liver, fantastic seafood pasta etc. Well worth a visit.

Under a previous ownership we visited regularly and it was always excellent (and always full). Our first visit under the new ownership was disappointing and we will not return. There wasn't a single Christmas decoration in the dining room, just a solitary Christmas tree in the foyer. Despite good service the overall ambience was poor. The food was nothing special,... More

We loved the restaurant with good sized, well spaced tables, with lovely white napery and cloths. The service was very good and attentive. The menu was very good with so many favourite dishes it was hard to choose. All in all very good value for a good meal in an up market setting. It is a pity that the new... More

I love this restaurant , always great food and service. The food is very Italian and the menu takes quite some studying if you are familiar with this type of fare. I highly recommend the chateaubriand. Will be back soon
