“Good food but........”
Reviewed December 27, 2013

We went to the restaurant on a cold windy day and were made very welcome with the staff moving seats to accommodate a party of six. The place was very busy and had a good atmosphere.

Drinks orders fine, food fine except that , after three times of requesting a bread basket I had ordered at the start , I gave up and we were told it had been taken off the bill.

But the worst thing of all was the state of the toilets.... The gents had one out of order and the ladies that I visited was frankly a disgrace. Two of the three had no seats - not that I wanted to sit down but that is beside the point - and one was SO dirty I would not go in it or allow my Granddaughter to use it. The basins were filthy too.
Now this may sound picky but the waiter I told shrugged his shoulders and said 'really'h ........
Yes really - this is NOT good enough and it does make you wonder about the kitchens too.

“Bella pasta!”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

A lively and popular Italian restaurant in the heart of the English Lakes. There is some really good value, authentic food to be had here. The dishes are tasty and the mainly young staff are attentive. Look out for the "Happy Hour" choices, which offer the best value of all.

“Really nice place to eat”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

This is a really great place to eat. We eat here twice, happy hour is well worth going too. Thought maybe with the price we wouldn't get alot but we did, you get alot for your money, well worth going. Only down side is the staff don't seem to smile too much but maybe they were having a bad. If your looking for good food go here... inore the silly reviews saying its not ''fine dining'' if you want al a cart eat where you pay over the odds for that and get a small amount of food lol hope this review helps you.

“Younger staff pleasant...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

Turned up for the happy hour. Quickly seated by the younger gent. Very pleasant and quickly served without been intimadating... couldnt help but notice change of decor. Very pleasant. Anyway, ordered our food and came quickly. Standard level of food with a lovely sound of the microwave door slamming from the kitchen... need to do more with an oven... plus scottish older waiter, seems to be the supervisor. Saw him very rarely making an appearance on the floor and stood in the kitchen eating pizza, talking and occasionally pretending to do work. Younger staff all good and pleasant whilst older guy needs to do some work. Walks round and round in circles inbetween bites of pizza... could wash your hands too afterwards mate!
