We had a family visit arriving at around 2.00pm without a booking. It was quiet but we got a great table. Drinks order taken and they arrived quickly. We ordered from the Sunday Special menu which is fantastic value. Two crab brushetta's and bread and olives to start. The starters were very good. For mains, the kids had pizza with ham and linguine - both excellent and really good size portions (the kids meal deal with main, drink and pudding is great value too). For the grown ups, the Turkey Sunday lunch was magnificent, lots of meat, tasty stuffing and really nice vegetables. The mixed meat lunch was just amazing, loads of beef, turkey and pork with all of the trimmings, it was a challenge to get through it but it was one of the best lunches I have had. The gravy makes a big difference and it was delicious. The kids had rice pudding for dessert which was wolfed down. The drinks are well priced, the atmosphere really good and the restaurant is really bright and airy following the revamp. We do enjoy Scallinis and it won't be long before we return.
