Have been here a few times cant fault the food but the staff and manager just dont meet any standard of customer service or manners which finally took it of our list even though the food is good if you dont get good customer service there really no point is there?

Excellent food and service. Really great starter menu. Have tried the lamb and the duck on two different occasions- both excellent!

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and decided to go to the restaurant rather than the bistro where we would normally eat. The service was excellent; during the evening there were at least 4 people keeping an eye on us and serving us promptly. The starter herb bread (read herb pizza) was a bit too filling as by the time... More

Disappointed with crammed seating but the cuisine met our expectations. Traditional Italian menu with a bit of cosmopolitan spin. Would be returning only for the food and wonderful staff but the female owner/hostess was rude and selective with her door greetings. Her lack of manners and timing choice of unappropiate discussion with selective patrons concerning her staff was poor conduct... More

Had been walking the Main Street looking for a place to dine. Through the window this looked warm and welcoming and busy, always a good sign. We were not disappointed - the food was delicious, wine choices good and the staff friendly. Would definitely go again.

We didn't expect much from a suburban restaurant on a Thursday but close to home with easy parking made it a simple choice. The interior is nicely fitted with comfy seating, good quality tableware and linen. Carpets underfoot and padded sections of wall reduce the usual restaurant clatter to almost nothing. There was a comforting happy buzz from several groups... More

I have been dining at this restaurant for years and it never disappoints me. The food is delicious with generous serving sizes, the wine list extensive and the desserts to die for. I must say I have never found Myrta the hostess to be rude as some other reviewers only welcoming. perhaps she was having an off day. I can... More

Enjoyed a formal dinner in the fine dining area. Returned for lunch in the Bistro. On both occasions, the staff did not seem as friendly as we have experienced at other restaurants. We will try one more time as it is a very nice restaurant and the food is good..

I'm lost for words... Never have I felt as unwelcomed and disappointed in any restaurant, anywhere in the world. I've since worked out, from other scathing reviews, that our 'hostess' is the owner! Unfortunately, even though the food was of a decent standard, she is the reason why we will never be back: rude, arrogant, and dismissive. To the said... More
