“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Went as a party of 5 on a Saturday night. We were well greeted and told where our table would be, it went downhill after that. One of us ordered a main course and it took 20 minutes for them to tell us they had none left. The pizza had to be sent back because it was cold, the gnocchi was heavy and the lemon sole was cooked in burnt oil.
We were never offered black pepper and the salt and pepper pots on the tables were mostly empty.
Two of the waiting staff were rather surly, we had too long a await for each course (20-30 mins), and it is very pricey. Don't think we'll be going back.

“Better than the "run of the mill Italian"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The restaurant deserves three & a half stars but Tripadvisor unfortunatley won't allow this. I consider myself a bit of an aficionado on Italian food after cooking it most of my adult life and many trips to Italy & Sicily and, this restaurant although a chain fairs better than your "Local" style Italian. Nice open feel to the restaurant and good attentive service.
Food is Good , not Average and the menu is much more adventurous than "Salmone al Farfalle " etc. They use and source mostly seasonal produce and cooked well it well. Nothing ground breaking or amazing but nice fresh cooked Italian food.
Great Puglian Fiano wine as well. Reasonably priced meal.

“Nice family feel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had a lunchtime set meal, & ate outside in the sunshine. The service was very professional & the food was very well presented. Plenty of fresh produce (some of it was delivered as we were eating !!), and tasty food. A very nice Summer experience in a bright, modern restaurant.

“Good italian with attentive staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Booked an early table for 4 on a Thursday night. Restaurant was quite quiet but sufficient atmosphere. Food was excellent - king prawn starter only 3 king prawns but tasty. Main course of chicken with mushroom had a very good sauce. Another in the party had the fish skewer which was also very good. Probably did not need more than one side dish amongst four. Not the cheapest at £150 for 4 with few drinks (no wine) but would happily pay it again to know that it would be a good meal - far too many Italians seem to disappoint.
