“Amazing food, excellent service. What a night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

My family and I ate here to celebrate the end of our holiday and it couldn't have been better. We ordered three starters to share (the prawns, arancini, and the scallops) and all three were divine. I couldn't pick a favourite! The service was fantastic and despite other reviews our drinks came very quickly and our wine was fantastic. Mains came out quickly as well and everyone was very impressed. We all had pasta and it was delicious. Dessert was fantastic, my sister and I shared the chocolate cake and wished that we had ordered two because it was just that good! We ate early - 6pm as we have a 10month old in our party, so we were in and out by 730pm without being rushed at all. The only negative was that they only have 2 high chairs and both were taken by a previous table so my daughter had to stay sitting in her pram to have her dinner. Not a huge issue though, it might be a good idea to ring up and book a high chair if you need one. Would go back here in a flash, it was an excellent experience and so well priced for the quality!

“Friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

An excellent meal with very friendly service and a great ambience. It was fairly quiet when we were there but may be a bit crowded at busy times as it is not huge.

“Food was OK but service was poor”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014 via mobile

Looks inviting from the street. Not the best Italian food we've had but certainly not the worst. The biggest turn off was the service. No-one was bothered about us right through to trying to pay. Even took the bill and credit card personally up to the register twice before someone would process it. As with many tourist places, restaurants really aren't bothered about repeat business, and it shows.
