We were here with family on a very busy night and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had a good seat in a part of the restaurant where we could all talk and hear each other. Best of service throughout the meal. The food is good too. A great place for an Italian meal.

Went last night with 21 friends and thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was fantastic and very good value for the quality. Amazingly they managed to get all our meals out at the same time. Quite a feat. Lovely friendly staff - will not hesitate to come back.

A second visit here both occasions were enjoyable, the service was quick and the staff friendly, the 4pm opening time on a Sunday a bit annoying cos it meant hanging around after our shopping expedition but then again we knew the score, prefer this place to the west cafe parme
