Truly lovely place, food is always good and they have a greater variety than most Italian restaurants. Only niggle is that you do so,e times feel a bit rushed, and though the staff are lovely they do tend to hover! Been here loads and always enjoyed it.

Went for a meal last night at this restaurant, and after only booking at 5pm was so pleased they could give us a table for later that night. Menu is vast and caters for lots of different people with different tastes, the food is well presented and tasty and the service is fabulous very attentive staff and nothing was too much trouble. And after spending over four hours there,eating, drinking and laughing they didn't even kick us out :)

Will definitely be returning xxx

Food is cooked beautifully presentation excellent Evening was spoilt however as music was far too loud My group of friends couldn't hear one another speak We all like lively venues but felt for a restaurant where people want to chat over a meal the volume was too loud Just being turned down slightly would have made all the differance

I have been 8 times now including during their highly popular and very busy Tuesday night where they run a £10 meal deal. Each time it has been flawless. The crab and crayfish linguini is simple but beautiful! and my favourite. I find it hard to try anything else but I have and have been impressed. I have had steak there and that was cooked to perfection and a nice quick Pizza on a Sunday early evening is probably the best pizza you can get in Ormskirk. I would steer clear of the duck salad, that was my only gripe..Try it for yourself, I highly recommend Sunday late afternoons as it's a lovely ambiance and a relaxing atmosphere, but even in the busy times it still proves it can provide quality food at decent prices. The staff are wonderful too.

I have eaten here over 20 times and its always been very good.

Lovely atmosphere, great service and excellent food.

There are lots of deals on through the week and at weekends and the menu has something for everybody.

The service has always been good and I would definitely recommend a visit here!
