This was a one-off for me: I haven't eaten here before, and I doubt whether I will choose it again. Looking for somewhere near to my hotel where I hadn't eaten before, I decided to try this restaurant as I fancied a pizza.
The food itself was ok but nothing special; the menu is worryingly long, and I always get a bit scared when the menu has pictures of the food (as the pudding menu does). A starter of gamberoni alla diavola comprised four or five average-sized prawns with some salad; it was certainly spicy - there were lots of bits of chilli in it. On to a main course of a pizza which was again average at best; it had the taste and feel of a reasonably good-quality, supermarket-bought pizza rather than a restaurant pizza; there was nothing to suggest that it was cooked in a proper pizza oven, with no nice burnt edges of pizza base, but the taste was ok.
So, average food, but the prices are reasonable so it's hard to complain when the food was perfectly edible. The ambience was cool in every sense - the restaurant was chilly (I was seated near the door though) and the service perfunctory, with a sense of "going through the motions". Combine this with a very dated decor, cheesy Italian music and a lack of "buzz", and it all points to a rather gloomy eating experience. Having said that, there were one or two diners who seemed to be regulars, so clearly some people are happy with what's on offer.
If you choose this restaurant you'll get a reasonable meal at better than average prices for the area. However, I have to say that there are better options in the locality, at similar or slightly higher prices.
