“Very good food and service.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Had a lovely, romantic meal for two recently. The food was delicious, maybe a little longer to wait for it as its cooked fresh to order, but worth the wait. Took advantage of the 2 for 1 offer, the waitress was polite and very attentive, maybe would have been nice to be offered a bigger table as midweek it was quiet and not full. Would definately go again.

“Lovely Birthday Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Absolutely beautiful meal for our party of four, with two of us sharing a birthday.
We were looked after with a complimentary glass of bubbles on arrival and a cake to finish our evening (with joint candles to blow out!)
Maurizio is not only a great chef but a genuinely lovely host, book a table and enjoy - week night offers leave you no excuse not too. Prezzo.... you have been left standing!

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Had a lovely meal for two. The service was excellent and made you feel special. The food was cooked perfectly and was reasonably priced. I would recommend this place for couples for a romantic meal as they have a few tables tucked away but equally good for a group.

“Fantastic Italian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

I have just celebrated my birthday with family at this fantastic restaurant.
Maurizio the owner and chef really made the occasion special. The food was superbly cooked and came out piping hot even though he cooks alone with no assistance. I had the baked mushrooms to start and the steak as a main which was cooked perfectly. Other family members were very happy with their choices and the Capaletti pasta dish starter was definitely a favourite. Maurizio even takes the time to come out and chat to the diners once he has finished cooking. Which is a lovely personal touch.
The waitresses are very helpful and always offer service with a smile.
It's a family favourite of ours and we will definitely return.
