“Great value, great taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Very surprised to find this gem so close to us. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the ambience. Located in city centre so would be good for evening out or lunch when shopping, they seem to have a specific lunch time menu to reflect this.

“Excellence, every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Decided to go here after work on Wednesday, knowing that in the countless times I have visited for business or pleasure it has been superb. They didn't let us down.

We ordered 2 starters and 2 mains to share

Italian sausage
King prawns

Pizza calabrese
King prawn spaghetti from the specials

Recommended a bottle of gavi by the waiter so went with that (always like to help boost their profit margins ;). )

Everything was spot on as ever - really like the for, atmosphere etc and will continue to visit regularly.

Also great for business as it is relaxed and great quality without being over pretentious

“thoroughly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

The restored building is very elegant and beautiful with large spacious rooms.We were a large family group and had chosen the early evening option.This is somewhat cheaper and more suitable for groups with children.The reception/bar area is large and comfortable,we had small children in tow and in true Italian fashion they were welcomed and tolerated.Staff were very friendly,producing balloons etc for the kids,orders were taken in the bar area and the waiting time was pleasant.We were shown into the dining room with the large open kitchen which was entertainment in itself.The food was lovely,everyone seem to order something different but all arrived in a few minutes of each other.Reasonably priced ,good service,great atmosphere and we were very well looked after and the children were treated in a delightful manner.The manager/owner? came to say Goodbye to us as we were leaving ,was very charming.By then it was filling up with smaller parties and was probably a good time for a big family group to leave.Thank for a lovely experience on the last night of our U.K. trip.

“Great lunch time meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The limited lunch time menu gives you great deals on the normal price which makes this a good value alternative to the larger chain restaurants. There is a decent selection of starters and mains and the service was prompt and efficient. The decor is traditional Italian with high quality fittings adding to the ambience. The food is very tasty and makes a pleasant break from shopping. Would recommend to anyone for lunch.

“Seriously Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

A fairly unprepossessing exterior belies a seriously palatial classically italianate restaurant within - in fact you could imagine yourself in Venice or Florence but dining at a fraction of the cost of such places. The food was first class, the service efficient and attentive and the price (with a Deal Monster voucher) pretty reasonable for such quality. Had the advantage of going Sunday lunchtime when it happened to be fairly quiet, definitely a good time to go and thus be waited on hand and foot. Highly recommended!
