“Worst ever.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Do not go here, the service is pathetic, had to steal nibbles from the bar, food is tasteless and boring, long wait for everything but the bill .

“nice meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

we visited as a family of three. Restaurant set out nicely and very clean. Meals were nice but the service was slow, only two staff serving and quite busy although midweek. We had to ask for drinks and too long between courses.

“Fab food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

We are regular visitors to this restaurant and I have never had a bad meal here. The waiters are sometimes a little too attentive, but overall the dining experience is great. I can particularly recommend the Calzone Pizzas, as they are wonderfully tasty and the dough is nice and light.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

Went here on valentines day with my partner, they made a real effort we had a rose on arrival, the place looked lovely the staff was very friendly, the prices are really good!! would recommend this place to anyone! Just as good as anywhere i have ever been in the city centre. The food is excellent quality, the portions are that large we couldnt finish it! They also give the option for you to take any food you have not eaten away in a pizza box! will be returning here for sure!
