I arrived in Northampton on a Tuesday on business and checked into an hotel near the railway station. I walked around the local area looking for somewhere decent to eat. The centre of Northampton was rather depressing..... many restaurants were closed and those that were open were empty. Finally I settled on an Italian restaurant, but this was very disappointing....

My boyfriend took me here to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant had decorated the table for me for when we arrived which was lovely. The restaurant is cosy inside although there is some upstairs dining also. The restaurant staff were very pleasant and happy to provide suggestions on the food. Our meals were all really tasty - especially the garlic... More

What a wonderful evening the food was fabulous, the service excellent, the staff friendly and attentive. We both had the steak Dianne, cooked at the table and it melted in the mouth. I cannot hesitate to recommend this restaurant enough, we will certainly be going back again and again.

Visited with a team of work colleagues. We received a very warm welcome and were accommodated immediately despite not having booked prior to arrival. The service was excellent and the courses were served in good time. The food was excellent and we all agreed we would revisit this one if we return for Northampton in the future.

We are still looking for a decent Italian restaurant in the area, and this isn't it. We were sent upsatirs as the ground floor was full and served by a very English chap who was a bit on the casual/matey side. In fact there wasn't much Italianate about the place at all and the food was pretty average. Seems quite... More

Came here on a Thursday evening to be served by the wonderful waiter who is at least 10 years older than God. Food is very 1970's but tasty, cooked well and Steak Diane and Crepe Suzette flambé at the table, pure theatre and why we love it so much

We got a table under the stairs, so I had to sit bent forward a little the whole evening...not so nice, but better like that then no table at all. Food was ok according to other UK restaurant I went to. Dessert wasn't that great. I had a simple ice cream and there were frozen ice cristals in it. Don't... More
