“Super Average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

I don't want to say this was bad but it certainly wasn't good - very average in fact. A safe choice if everything else is shut. The calamari tasted like deep fried elastic bands and the steak was tough but for a ten quid set you get what you pay for. Desserts are store bought and very uninspired and the service was pleasant enough. Kids had the pizza which were good. Italian food for people who have never been to Italy and don't know any better.

“Table for 10”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Went here after a long day at netball. We booked a table for 10 and it was all waiting for us when we arrived. Service was top notch. Great selection of food. Very large portion starters and. Ain. So much so couldn't finish main meal. The staff were so friendly made it a great night out. Great value for money would go back

“Excellent Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

I visited the restaurant with my wife on a Friday evening and found the place very welcoming. We had a lovely vegetarian dinner on a table for two overlooking the quiet streets leading to Gants Hill Station.

The owner of the restaurant was himself present and was personally attending all the patrons.
The place was busy with a lot of families and large groups but that did not effect the speed of the service. The waiters were almost omnipresent, busy spreading an infectious smile. The ambiance was very comfortable and it was enhanced by very good food.

Would definitely like to visit the place on my next trip to London.
