Booked a table with friends, we all had a very warm welcombe by the waiting staff and were shown to our table upstairs. The food was of very good quality and the portion sizes were good without being overwhelming. Lovley atmosphere, and would definitely recommend. Will return.

My hubby and I love this restaurant. Great food. Really great actually. The nice thing is the way you're not rushed at all, you can enjoy the courses and drinks and liqueurs, the service is friendly and it all feels classic Italian. Highly recommend.

We've been here loads of times and the only downside is that it's sometimes full to bursting. On a sunny weekend lunchtime remember to book. My new girlfriend (now wife) first bribed me into Saturday shopping by taking me here before we started. Saturday shopping is almost agreeable after a good meal and a bottle of red. My particular favourite... More

We booked this restaurant based on the reviews here and our expectations were high however, we were left a little underwhelmed. The food was OK but not special in any way.
