“Still Hungry”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Food is good, however left hungry. I am not a massive eater, however the pasta dishes did not seem to fill anyone properly. Waiter spilt a muscle into my Pint and asked if i wanted another one and later found that this had been put on the bill.

“Great food, value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2012

We looked at the reviews prior to coming to this restaurant and they were mixed but we decided to try it. I have to say that the food was great. The 2 course offer is excellent value and the portion sizes not compromised as they might be in other places. The wine is reasonably priced too. The service was very good and you didn't feel rushed into each course. I would definitely visit again

“only just average......”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Went with my daughter and was initially happy after an elderly couple gushed about how good the food was.This was short lived as the food started to arrive as what came out was poor. My daughter left most of her food and as eaten Italian many times in many restaurants in England and Italy. Her thoughts as an 8 year old was "Dad, lets not go back there again"

Go to Francesca's..............

“Shame about just one member of staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012 via mobile

Food is reasonably priced, very presentable and tasty. However, you will be unlucky if the female member of the staff attends your table. She gives you the impression that she has better things to do. When you food is served, she doesn't remember who ordered what and presents the names of your order so quickly you don't have a chance to hear, so they are repeated and the food is placed rather abruptly in front of you. Hence have never yet given a tip. Customer service is everything, she should go on a course or get another job if she doesn't like it. Otherwise a nice place with nice atmosphere.
