On arrival, Saleem noticed that we were cold and bought us a glass of hot water with a napkin to warm our hands along with a welcoming glass of prosecco how thoughtful. The food was excellent as usual. I had the lamb main meal, just so good. Great place for Italian food at a great price.

I decided to come here with my girlfriend because Michelin guide recommended and we love Italian food. Very warm welcome by waiters, simple set menu, but very good choices. Food was amazing, very nice presentation. We had monkfish pasta with aubergine, cherry tomatoes, garlic, chilli and pan fried sea trout with canellini bean pure and green beans salad. Highly recommended.

We booked for dinner after an amazing show at The New Theatre. The restaurant is cosy and the food was really great! The host and waitress were very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful evening with great food and good wine. Highly recommended!

.. the nicest Italian restaurant we have been to. Booked for 17.30, as we were going to a concert afterwards. Arrived right on time, to a very warm welcome. Glasses of Prosecco to welcome us! Not a huge menu (good sign) and not a pizza in sight. Starters of goat's cheese(1) and beef fritter(1) were lovely. We both decided on... More

Three of us went to Casanova's on a Saturday lunchtime on the off chance they could fit us in. We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived and throughout the meal. One of our party is vegetarian and although there were vegetarian options she fancied one of the other dishes and asked for the dish without the... More
