“charity dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

An excellent evening organised to support Action Medical Research. A great choice of dishes and superb service - 3 courses for just £12.95!!
The restaurant was buzzing - great music and friendly helpful staff.

“Used to love this place but now disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Firstly I would like to point out that our last visit was on a Groupon offer.... which I dont think should lower the standards of the meals but who knows...
I used to love this place, it felt like an authentic Italian but we left disappointed recently. As a starter we ordered garlic bread with cheese and little fried fish - fish was nice but garlic bread was without cheese and it really was just a garlic buttered baguette...
For the main I had tagliatelle with cream, mushroom and bolognese sauce which tasted like Dolmio pasta bake sauce. My boyfriend ordered a pizza which was burnt at the bottom and even though there was a spicy sausage on it, it didnt really tasted of anything. We have returned the pizza and ordered a starter portion of Bolognese which was cooked really fast therefore quite watery.
Otherwise service is very good, waiters are really nice but what a shame on the food...

“Lively, friendly and cosy traditional Italian restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Had a great meal here tonight the service and ambience was superb. The staff were super attentive and the food arrived in good time. We used to eat here many years ago and it's safe to say the quality is still as good as it was back then. Do yourself a favour and pop in for a bite to eat, you won't be disappointed!
