My family and I (3 kids 2 adults) had dinner here last night. The food was fantastic, our kids wanted more arancini balls and their kids pasta was great. The pastas we had for main were a generous size and we were unable to finish them, as much as we wanted to. Desserts were also very nice (we didn't really... More

9 of us dined here last night, none of us will be back or recommending to others. Asked for a recommendation on a yummy, fruity cocktail and waiter recommended a 'pink bits', aka straight tequila. Food average at best, no comment from the waiter when most of our plates were not even half eaten. None of us were particularly hungry... More

Enjoyed watching all the cocktails being made. The staff were lovely. I had spaghetti and my wife had the lasagne that came an individual serving pot. The food was nice but we felt it was on the bland side. Perhaps that is authentic, we'll find out when we go to Italy later in the year!

Always enjoy the food at this restaurant, the staff are warm and friendly, the only downside is the noise factor, but generally has a great atmosphere.

Our meals and cocktails were delicious. We both had the lamb lasagne, so there was no good envy ;). It was a busy night when we went but the service was still very good. The vibe in the restaurant is nice, the only weird thing was that you could hear the bomb from the music coming through from the club... More

This place was hard to find, but once we found it we were glad that we persisted. Authentic Italian with great atmosphere. Friendly staff. It was a weeknight so was not busy therefore we were seated immediately. Menu choices were what you would expect from a good Italian. Our mains were huge but very good.

This restaurant has a smallish menu with authentic options. The entrees - arancini balls were super. Mains looked small in the massive plates but were quite filling. Deserts😍😍. The waiters were what made the night great. Downside was that it was nearly impossible to have a conversation due to the wooden floors and tables all sounds echoed around the room.... More

Great atmosphere (booths out the front are great on a nice night), good service and really delicious Italian food. This is not a cheap and cheerful past/pizza joint. The duck was perfectly cooked with tender meat and a crispy skin on great gnocchi and had a perfect sauce. The lasagne is made with shredded lamb that makes it really good.... More
