“Good friendly Italian especially at happy hour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We often stop here for lunch on a Saturday, happy hour is cheaper than going home. Excellent head waiter, some of the waitress's can be a bit sullen. Excellent pizza, and garlic bread. Not tried Pasta but always looks good. Had canalonni on last visit, not on Menu but Head Waiter said they would make one for me and I could have it at a happy hour price. It was excellent, very hot, good flavour and lots of tasty tomato sauce. Very different to the dry Cannaloni and Lasagne that are served in many of the pubs in S. lakes. Excellent value.....if you get the sullen waitress's ask for the head waiter ..it's worth the hassle!,!

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Ordered lunch for both myself and my daughter. I was reasonably happy with my choice although my daughter said that the chips were awful and on tasting them, I have to agree. They were undercooked and powdery in the middle. The bar staff seemed quite miserable, I don't think I saw a single smile throughout. Lacked a sense of intimacy and seemed more like a restaurant chain. The head waiter was helpful. Please do something with those dreadful chips!

“Average Italian with friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

If you fancy the typical westernized Italian with poor Italian pop playing from the loudspeakers.. This is the place. That said the service was friendly and attentive, the sticky BBQ ribs were good (didn't know that was an Italian dish) the pizzas were not bad moor exciting, lacking flavor and so was the side salad. Apparently the place has happy hour were food and drinks are served at good prices and it seems to be a happening buzz around this time..

“Lovely food best Italian we've had in a long time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

The food was absolutely lovely. We stayed in the lakes for 4 nights and went for my birthday meal here. The food was excellent and brilliant value for money. Strongly recommend this place.
