Ordered the house special for a starter. The pate was grainy. The fish platter risotto I ordered as a main course was simply terrible. The squid was like a piece of rubber, the muscles and clams were very overcooked, I had prawn shells still on the prawns and some empty muscle shells on the plate. The garlic bread was burnt... More

A nice little find we were tradesmen working away from home great food nice size portions friendly staff and at three courses for 13.95 great value. All of us had different things of the menu so we had 9 courses to judge the food on and would still be very happy to recommend this nice little Italian restaurant

Can't remember now what we had(!) but do remember that it was good for the price. Not a bad house wine, good service and pleasant decor. If you don't like crowds, ask to sit upstairs, not downstairs.

We have eaten here for a number of years usually 4 or 5 times a year. Our last two visits have been a bit disappointing though. The service is as friendly as it has always been and the prices are very reasonable, especially on weekdays. However, the food is not as good as it used to be. On our recent... More

Unfortunatly the gin and tonic/bitter lemon tasted very musty and the bitter lemon was out of date, we told the waiter that the gin did not taste right, he brought us another gin to try, it smelt the same, we decided that maybe it was musty glasses and put up...

This review has been posted in retaliation to an incident where the REVIEWER was verbally abusive and racist towards a member of our staff, and we had to press charges.
