Went here for a meal with the wife. A very relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. We had a mix up with our order but this was quickly sorted out. The food is well cooked and very tasty. This is a restaurant that i will certainly return to.

Spent a fantastic afternoon learning how to cook Risotto Allan Milanese and tagliatelle bolognese. Mal the chef and Alison were excellent teachers guiding us through step by step. Sitting down afterwards to enjoy the fruits of our labours while served by Cam made the afternoon extra special. I would recommend this experience.

We’ve driven past this place a few times recently so decided to give it a try. Generally, the staff are pleasant and helpful (though the waiter’s inability to open and pour wine was worrying). The room is nice enough, though rather dark for my taste. The food was pleasant, but a bit ordinary: it isn’t the best Italian around, but... More

Welcoming and lovely food. Never been disappointed since it first opened. If you like meat cooked Italian style then you cannot go wrong. Vegetables always fresh. Staff friendly and helpful. Management always on hand but not pushy, a relaxing meal always

Went here a couple of days ago and really enjoyed the ambiance and more importantly the food. We had a table of 8 people and everybody commentated how good the food and service was. I started with the meat balls and then the medallion of steak in pepper corn sauce, all the food was hot and well presented. The rose... More
