I dropped in for a quick American Hot Romana with a Peroni (£16 something) for lunch down by the marina. The food arrived quickly and was delicious liberally covered with chilli oil. The restaurant was like an oven. It was a sunny day and sunlight streamed through the windows beautifully but also raised the price temperature excessively. Music was playing... More

Ate at this restaurant last Sunday lunchtime for a family get together. The food was terrible. The calzone was burnt on the top, hardly any filling. The pizzas were dry and the crusts were burnt. The risotto was bland and had hardly any salmon in it. One of the pizzas was meant to have extra tuna on it, not sure... More

Arrived at 1pm - no record of our reservation. Fortunately, they could find us a table. We ordered quite promptly and our appetisers of garlic bread and olives duly arrived. However, our main courses took some considerable time. By this point the children were very hungry and had exhausted all the colouring and sticking options. We made the staff aware... More

Came here on a Thursday eve so it was fairly busy but not so busy they were rushed off their feet. We ordered drinks which came to us pretty quick but we're wrong.. then had starters which then weren't cleared away and our mains arrived so we had to move our plates to make way for the pizzas. Ordered 2... More

It would be quicker to catch a fish from the canal and cook it yourself! We started with no piccolo colouring entertainment for one of two children. Continued with the wrong starter being served for one of party of four. Waited a good 40 mins for service of children's food and 2 salad meals- of which one was incorrect. Chicken... More

I really struggled on what score to give. On one hand, the restaurant is nice - it's a light airy building on the quay with a good view and the service was really friendly and nice. The pizza was over done (I can't believe it was actually sent out it was so burnt) but I had waited ages and was... More

Good food great location. Service was slow especially for a half full restaurant. Make sure you have a voucher and you are laughing.

Visited for a family meal to celebrate a birthday. Got seated pretty quickly but had to ask to order drinks after a good 10 minutes. Had to ask again for water as they forgot. Starters arrived but garlic bread was on the verge of being bin-worthy as charred around the edges. Extremely long wait for mains which where apparently 2... More
