“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Average food and average service. Bit on the pricey side for what you get. Tired decor. The place got so much potential but clearly not enough competition in the village....

“Don't go as a party”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

Ok for couples but avoid as a party because the nature of the place means long thin tables with no room to breathe. Bar bills with a party are also problematic - but then again this is common with a lot of restaurants. Food is typical 'Britalian' with lots of creamy sauces, jack the lad waiters and enormous pepper mills (compensating for something?).

“No Flavour”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Wine and Music great but food very disappointing, Tagliatelle Bolognese (bland) with a Tomatoe and Mozzarella Garlic Bread (more like cheese on toast), would not go back, preferred pub next door.

“Updated menu needed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We ordered an 'emergency' takeaway from this very popular Italian by phone. However, the takeout menu cannot be believed - No discount at all (altho' we spent nearly £50), telephone numbers misleading (our food finished up at the Wokingham branch instead of the Crowthorne one!), and items shown on menu 'no longer available'. However, staff were helpful - they cooked our order for us (had to wait 20mins) - and the food was excellent, good quality and plenty of it. Take care if ordering by phone though!!
