It took 30 mins just to get a drink and then It took two hours to get only half the starters of the ten of us waiting , I would advise anyone interested in having a nice meal never to entertain this venue even if it's the last place...

When you order bruschetta and they don't know what that is............ What can you say to that?! They say they're all Italian but I'm not so sure...

A money making machine - always very, very busy. Quite way I'm not too sure. The good and service are fine - but nothing more, and nothing less. Indicative of the bland Hove palate.

Went here with some friends and had the lasagna which was pretty much all sauce no pasta and a bit of meat. The service was good and the food came out quickly.

My sisters were visiting and like me, they are Scottish Went in, seated and ordered some wine and drinks. Waiter brought wine over already opened and just poured... More
