Enjoyed my meal. Have been here many times and menu is pretty much the same doesn't change. Food is consistently good.. You have a good choice with pasta, pizzas and nice mains. Staff nice welcoming overall pleasant experience. Restaurant can get quite noisy with kids so not idea for a romantic meal.

Things weren't good and... More

We went for pizzas (snack size) and these proved enough for us. They were both delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. They offered a good menu and I would return again.

We popped in here as it was around from our motel and had read reviews. We didn't have a booking but got a table Straight away on a Sunday night. We opted for two smaller pizzas instead of one large. And glad we did to try different options! The salmon with blue cheese was amazing. And the meat lovers was... More

Love the place, atmosphere spot on and the food exceeded expectations. The whole family enjoyed it. The booths were comfy and worked well to help us contain our 2 young kids. We will be back!
