“A very enjoyable meal in a vibrant restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

The restaurant was very busy but the staff were eventually able to find us a table. We were so pleased that we waited and eat here because the variety and quality of the food was good, the atmosphere vibrant, and the service from our waiter (Hadji) was excellent. Highly recommended!

“Good Food - slight criticism”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

The staff were pleasant and efficient, the restaurant itself was likewise well presented. The food was plentiful and excellent. The only negative aspect was that, due to the busy nature of the restaurant causing a slight delay, we had to skip coffee due to the danger of clashing with our evening engagement. Nevertheless, I will certainly return to this restaurant.

“Walk away”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2012

The food is horrible, not at all like in Italy!!! The pasta were overcooked, the carbonara had more parsley than bacon. I had a hair in my pasta but had stopped eating them before as the meal was just watery.
The restaurant was busy and the waitress in a rush to get rid of us but we were also in a rush to leave.
The lemon tarts were very small more micro than mini.
We ended up being ill 15 minutes after leaving the restaurant! Never again
