“An old favourite - still great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

On a Tuesday night, there was not a spare seat in the restaurant - how incredible is that. This restaurant provides great Italian food and appears well loved by its loyal customers. The pre-theatre meal is brilliant value at £12.95 for two course. the minestrone soup is fab and the lasagne is a must, copy in trays which are well worn and a tribute to the longevity of the restaurant.
Highly recommended.

Had dinner twice here while staying at Grand Central Hotel. Both times had fabulous meals....everyone really enjoyed it and plates were empty. Price good too, with 4 mains, couple of salads, couple desserts and a bottle of wine for £80 including tip.
