Having walked passes this place many times I decided it was about time to give it a try.
Friendly welcoming staff, straight off the bat were quick to point out how delicious there pizza was, note to self "I'll be the judge of that", and how right I was to wait.
We ordered a pasta dish each and a pizza to share, we split the pizza 1/2 pepperoni and 1/2 Neapolitan with capers, olives and anchovies. I ordered the ravioli stuffed with spinach & ricotta. The menu was quite sufficient if not a little repetitive. A choice of about 10 sauces per page (all the usual suspects) and a page for each cut of pasta with each sauce repeated. Reasonable selection of wine however we stuck to soft drinks.
Our order was taken, once again we were reassured that the food was delicious.
Next to arrive was the cutler, this was meticulously placed in front of us, unfortunately each 'business end' was also handled, then re-handled. I cleaned my knife, spoon and fork with some water and a tissue.
The food was not much later to arrive, first impressions, all looks good. The ravioli was handmade and the filling was well seasoned and tasty, the sauce was also good. My dining companion had spaghetti with pesto, although the spaghetti was from dry it was good and cooked well, the pesto sauce ok, hard to tell if it was from a bottle or handmade. So all acceptable until we tried the pizza, terrible, soggy, wet base, tasteless tomato paste topping and mozzarella that tasted so watery.
Again the waitress came over this time she actually asked us if we thought it was nice food, although in a semi-rhetorical way. I pointed out the failings and was surprised the she would not accept my opinion.
It was the first and last time I will be eating here. You can get far better pasta and indescribably better pizza just 10 m away at the Pullman hotel oh; and here is the ironic part, the Pullman would have been cheaper for what we ordered.
