“Very enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

This was our first visit and we all really enjoyed the pleasant, modern surroundings, good service and very nice food. The portion sizes were just the right size to be able to enjoy three courses without feeling too full. I enjoyed the lovely goats cheese starter (although I would have preferred it without the tomato and berries, the ravioli (which was really great but maybe just a little too much of the cream sauce) and the chocolate pyramid which was gorgeous. Other dishes which were enjoyed in our group included the bruschetta, minestrone soup, cannelloni, chicken and asparagus and the creme brulee. Very nice and hope to return.

“Nice buzzing Italian restaurant. Decent value and nice wine. Shame it was so busy that service was slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

We hadn't booked but they found us a table on the 1st floor. Not sure they could really cope with the numbers as we had a long wait for service. Menu is long - usual suspects - pasta, pizza, grills. Recommend the marinated olives and the house red! Dessert menu was interesting. See photo! Would go back but not on a Saturday night.

“Nice trattoria style Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

We have been there a few times and the food is always good. The staff are very welcoming. My brother was very impressed with his pasta and his wife loved the melon starter. I had the vegetarian cannelloni which was really tasty. Great coffee. The earlybird deals are great and they were kind enough to extend it for us as we were caught up in roadworks and arrived late. All guests are assured of a warm welcome and it is clear from the greetings that the staff know their customers although they are equally friendly to people dining there for the first time.A really welcoming place . I will be back for sure
