We chose this restaurant from reviews on Trip advisor im glad we did i loved the place, in honesty my friends didnt all agree with me, one of our party eats plain food only so you order a plain chicken breast with roast potatoes you get exactly that!
We were taken straight to our table by the lovely manager ith a fab irish accent, we were looked after by a lovely girl whos nationality i was unsure of but she was just great, efficient and a real character.
There were five of us eating we ordered a bottle of Orvietto which was nice the other girls ordered peach schnapps and lemonade those three drinks cost almost £14 £1.50 for each shot of lemonade i think this is daylight robbery to be honest and for some this will be a huge negative.
For me the food was really nice i had a trio of bruschetta to start which was ok but my main pollo chiantigiana was a delight and not badly priced at just over £14. We only had three starters on the table nad all three liked them. The evening menu isnt cheap my friend had scallops in pancettta which sadly she didnt like she felt they were two salty, at £17.50 for 5 scallops again fairly pricy, we advised the manager of the oversalty issue she assured us no salt is used in the cooking of scallops it must just have been the pancetta so no adjustment wwas made to our final bill but she didi ask if my friend would prefer anything else which she declined. My chicken was stuffed with blue cheese and wrapped in pancetta i didnt think mine too salty but i guess this can all be down to particular taste. The salty issue raised its head again one of our party said her roast potatoes were too salty, i had them and mine were ok just seasoned nicely but admittedly not the best roast pots ive had in honesty. Again make your own mind up about this, i know i do. The rest of my party seemed to enjoy their food but there were no resounding oohs and aahhs to be honest two out of five liked main courses.
For myself i would return here maybe on a happy hour deal because i loved the authenticity of the place, i loved the vibrant atmosphere and we had great service all evening we did have a wait between each course and for our drinks but the place was large, packed to the rafters and it was saturday night peak time what do you expect! Im not sure my friends would go back i dont think they enjoyed the place like i did.
