I was at this restaurant last night for my sister in laws 70th birthday. What a fantastic evening we all had. The food was fantastic, as was the service. The staff were wonderful. I cannot thank them all enough for making her night so special. I have never been to this restaurant before and will most definitely be back.

Took my daughter (13) as a special treat and I have to say it was extremely disappointing. We were shown to our table which was at the very end of the restaurant where we could not hear the Italian music which I feel adds to the ambiance.
