Having been at this restaurant before for dinner, I was keen to return as the food was delicious, unfortunately the lunch menu is not so good. The Christmas lunch menu was unappealing and the standard of the food was not as good as on my previous visit, however service is excellent and the staff are very polite and friendly. I... More

My partner had told me how good this place was and that the ravioli was fantastic. Unfortunately when the meal came it was bland and unseasoned and there wasn't much substance to the meal. At the price of £13.95 (TRIANGOLI DI PESCE SPADA AI CROSTACEI) and £16.50 (TORTELLONI CON GRANCHIO E ARAGOSTA CON SALSA DI CALAMARI E ZUCCHINE) we were... More

I visited with a group of friends recently one Saturday evening for a meal celebrating a special occasion. Booking was easy and we changed the number of guests a few times with no issues. We had to put down a deposit on the table- this was fine by us. On arrival we were seated promptly on a lovely table and... More

On the whole we had a nice a nice meal in this restaurant however, I am really shocked and disappointed at the way my starter was presented. I ordered prawns and avocado, this was £9.95. When it arrived I was shocked to see that there were 3 prawns on top of a ball of lettuce and avocado what amazed me... More

This was not a good experience. Starting with taking the coats, no mention of the need for a cloakroom tag by the member of staff, only discovered this on leaving when forced to rummage through cloakroom to find coats. Continuing to soggy pizza served on chipped plate and waiter trying to remove half consumed drink. Very insipid Tiramisu. Final highlight... More

Being told a lot about this place I must say, I'm really disappointed. We went there recently with group of friends. Waiting more than an hour for food was not as bad as the fact that half of our group got the food about 30 minutes later than the other half. One of waiters, who unsuccessfully pretended to be Italian,... More
