I visited this restaurant three weeks ago and felt that the owner did not care about tarnishing the good reputation of this restaurant .then my husband and myself decided to have a meal monday 16 december since we heard that it is under new management.On arrival we were greeted with a good smile from the new owner and was very helpful with the menu to meet our requirements.the dishes were well presented so were the portion and the authentic iitalian taste we had a great time .we will go back again.why are you keeping the bad old comments since it is under new management which is unfair to the new owner and staff

After a busy night shopping we were hungry and couldn't find anywhere that was not rammed. We stumbled accross this place and gave it a try. The place was not very busy the waiter was very friendly and sat us down at the back he recommended the homemade lasagne and my partner had a fillet steak which came with a huge portion of chips and veg. The food was fantastic and tasted really fresh and authentic. The decor needs some attention but apart from that could not fault it! we were told it will be redone in january as under new management. This place is basic but great value for money though and we will be back.

Took a family of four for a meal at 6.00 on thursday evening. Arrived to find the very empty which thought was strange
had a starter and main course each which was only just palatable, bacon was in fact cheap ham cut up and very overcooked pasta, garlic mushrooms had no taste as not fresh garlic and everyone agreed it wasnt authentic italian
Found it very pricey but this was probably the fact they are very quiet and need to make as much as they can
as we left there was a menu for evening special which we had not been offered. when i questioned it the waitress was very confrontational and said you have to ask for it when i asked how could i ask for it when i didnt know about it she shrugged her soldiers
was told if i came back i could have it next time !! i would not go back even if i was hungry as its overpriced and certainly not good food. the waitress looked dirty and the restaurant smells damp
a very bad experience
