Had a lovely evening meal here. In fact, the lobster and prawn ravioli in a cream and saffron sauce was possibly the best I have had! My wife's crab starter was excellent, as was my calamari. Good house ragu too. Only things stopping full marks are limited wine list, service a little haphazard (though very friendly) and, critically, puddings are... More

We booked a couple of week in advance for a Saturday evening. No problems with anything. I even received a courtesy call during Saturday day to see if we still required the table. The food was out of this world and was spoilt for choice furthermore with the specials board. Service was excellent, the atmosphere was lovely. It truly was... More

Booked a table for 8.30pm on Christmas Eve in this small restaurant. Fantastic atmosphere, superb friendly service, food the best. I had crab to start and 14oz rib eye steak main with ice cream for finish. All the best I have tasted. Would really like to keep this place a secret but they deserve the praise. Well done. We will...

First visit and the restaurant is so tiny so make sure you book. Really worth a visit. Very busy but service was fast and efficient. Staff were very friendly and courteous. Great menu, lots of choice. Great value for money. Food was hot and full of flavour. Definitely will be going back.

The service was great from start to finish. The menu is varied & has lots of great Italian dishes to choose from. I would... More
