Basic Italian but nice. Not a great veggie section or fish but portions are huge so really good value for money.

Not been here for ages so wasn't sure what to expect. We had a lovely time and really enjoyed the food. Bruschetta, mussels and pasta Romano with red wine. Cosy atmosphere. Lovely waitress. Lovely night.

We booked this restaurant for an early Saturday evening family meal for the birthdays of our 9 year old sons. The service from beginning to end was first-rate and the food was faultless! The staff showed genuine interest in what we ordered and whether we were happy with our food - which we were! I only wish that we lived... More

This restaurant never fails and we had another brilliant two course meal again last week. The food was really thoughtfully prepared and well presented by staff who seemed to care about the service that they provided. We were so impressed that we are taking our social group of retired members back there in a few weeks time. Well done to... More

Called here one evening after reading some good reviews on TA. Wish we hadn't bothered! Staff miserable, no lights on, the odd customers who were in didn't look too impressed, should have spun on our heals and gone elsewhere - but unfortunately didn't..... Did the meal deal thing. The food was poorly prepared cash and carry rubbish. Will never darken... More

Booked in advance over the phone for a Friday night, wasn't at all busy which was a nice change for a Friday night which can be busy in some restaurants. My boyfriend had the spaghetti carbonara which he said was very nice and I had the spinach and ricotta pasta which was lovely. We didn't have starters or deserts as... More
