Nice place with good food and service. Good for family gatherings. Often full so best to book. Not so good for romance, or for those with hearing loss as hard surfaces make it very noisy.

Food is reasonably priced, I’ve had better Italian food, although it was perfectly fine. I had the beef cannelloni and really enjoyed it. All the rest of the family enjoyed there’s and overall we had a lovely night! Would recommend to friends and family
