Walked in the restaurant past a toilet with the door open. Not a good start. The menu was all torn. Again, this wasn't impressing me. My friend ordered stuffed peppers for starters, which he said were nice. I had king prawns in a watery tomato based sauce. OK but nothing special. We then both had a pizza. I ordered a... More

I have visited this restaurant on two occasions. The food is very good. However, it is can be very noisy at times, which makes it difficult to converse. Also, the drinks are rather expensive. I would, however, visit again, as the food was too a high standard.

Been coming here since I was a child and never had a bad meal. The food is amazing and all cooked fresh so you can leave things out the dishes or even add things to it. I personally like the penne al forno or the penna alla panna. The staff are always friendly and have a good sense of humour.... More

Decided to go to mark my mid-week birthday. It was quiet but the staff were very friendly and very attentive. The food was very good. I had lemon veal - not actually mentioned on the menu but offered as an alternative to the Vitello pizzaiola on the menu. My partner had chicken in a mushroom and cream sauce. Starters were... More

There was a good selection of everything which was well made and presented well. It was busy when we arrived which is always a good sign and the atmosphere was pleasant throughout!! The cost was fair, you get what... More

The welcome is warm, the atmosphere was great. Food choice is varied, menu is clear. The food is delicious; pasta and pizza is a clear winner for me but there are many fish and meat choices to be had. Waiters are also great Highly recommended

Saturday evening visit so expected it to be busy but not quite so noisy - if you're looking for peace or romance, look elsewhere or go on a weeknight. Food lovely, nothing pretentious, overpriced or overty 'cheffy' here, just a good selection of varied, well presented and authentic dishes - something for everyone. They did get my Swordfish order wrong... More
