Had a lovely family meal here on Saturday. Lovely tortellini and atmosphere. Have also been to the sister restaurant in burgess hill and also a lovely place. Service was good and no complaints from any of us in regards to the food! Yum!

Bad Service The manager or owner does not know how to treat customers, the food poor and tasteless. The only good thing is the waiters

We had a wonderful time here as a group of friends. My friend said it was one of the best lasagnas she has ever had. Really delicious food and great value. Looking forward to a return visit.

Great authentic Italian food at reasonable prices. Not very full at lunchtime at weekends but always busy in the evenings so best to book a table for an evening visit. They often have a Groupon deal on as well so keep an eye out.
