“Excellent family-run Italian with surprisingly good Sunday Roast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

We have eaten here on Sundays & other times and apart from a hearty welcome from the owner & attentive staff, it is good to see a non-chain restaurant with passion for food in such a touristy location. The portions are generous & the Sunday roasts succulent & satisfying. Perfect for a treat!

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2011

The food was okay, but it could have been better.
My friend ordered her fish to be grilled with boiled potatoes and steamed or boiled veg... The potatoes were fried and the veg roasted.
I had the smoked salmon pasta dish, it was pretty stodgy. The taste was nice but I found I could only eat about half as it was over cooked.
The service was ok, we weren't ignored however nobody was falling over themselves to take orders or clear plates and as the restaurant wasn't even half full I would have expected a little more from the service.

“If you know even a little about Italian food, don't waste your money here.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2011

Very poor quality ingredients, very poor (clueless) service, badly cooked food and unhelpful all round. Really can't be too bothered writing too much. I have eaten in every Italian restaurant around, I cook Italian and I am Italian. This is the worst Italian restaurant in Hampshire and West Sussex, in my humble opinion.
