We had a super meal, in casual, friendly surroundings. The cooking was first rate and the service attentive and efficient.

Thoroughly recommended - we will certainly be back.

Lovely food. And love the fact you can buy Italian goods too. Unfortunately we had to wait 45 minutes for our main meal with no explanation. Would visit again.

Dear DevonProuty
thank you for your contribution.
Our food is cooked from fresh to order, therefore sometimes it can take a little longer. We try to manage this by taking bookings apart from each other not to overload the kitchen but last week in two occasions our restaurant got nearly full in a matter of minutes, making it a bit difficult for us to deliver the food without delays. Please accept our apologies. We invite you to visit us again (and make yourself known to us if you like) so that we could show you that this is not the normality in our restaurant.
Thank you again for the very good rating.
Our best regards
Lorenzo & Ewa

Took my dad for a meal here last night and although I wasn't expecting too much, due to the fact that I had purchased the meal and wine using Groupon, it was first class. I had the lasagne which really was exceptional and Dad had the prawn and crab risotto which he thoroughly enjoyed. Definately recommend this lovel little restuarant with it's super friendly staff.

Went here last night on the basis of other reviews on trip advisor. All I can say is that anyone who gives it more than one star must be the owner's mate. This is NOT an Italian restaurant for a starter. They sell pizzas and they may have once looked at an Italian cookbook but that's as far as it goes. The bread was white sliced supermarket bread. The olives out of a jar. One of our party had a tagliatelle that was supposed to have had anchovies in but which from the taste was (rancid) smoked fish of some kind. The risotto with cheese and pears also tasted rancid. The wine sauce with the lamb hadn't been cooked long enough - same with the Bolognese sauce. Avoid at all costs
