The restaurant is a nice place and the atmosphere on the middle floor was good. The food was also very good and the staff were extremely accommodating and friendly.

We've eaten here many times and we get the same high standard time after time. Whether it's lunch or dinner the food is excellent and plentiful. The staff are all genuinely pleased to great and serve you, ensuring everything is to your satisfaction. The house wine is particularly nice and compliments their menu perfectly. It's a bit of a squeeze... More

Meatloaf up to its usual high standard. Staff too! Best tiramisu around. Relaxed atmosphere - not like a 'chain' at all.

Lovely place and friendly service. However from the moment we walked inside I felt we were on a conveyor belt, and being rushed to finish. Our food was ok but there were a few things that I could tell were not up to the standard I expected, here's a few- Lasagne sauce was just passata sauce with no other herbs... More

This was a graduation lunch with very elderly and demanding grandparents. The waiter seated us quickly and were very tolerant of various demands The food arrived miraculously quickly considering how busy the restaurant was with various celebrating families and we didn't feel at all rushed Our meals were delicious and it was an all round great experience all the more...

Its always a great sign to see a restaurant packed on a Monday night. Rustic was suggested by our Hotel- great choice. The waiting staff certainly contribute to the ambience- most of whom are Italian (or pretend to be!!). Its busy, noisy, tables are close together ..but thats the charm. The boss waiter that night ave great advice on food... More
