Been going since it opened in 1984, never let's you down and food is fantastic. My wife and I had a wonderful window table and the service was fantastic. I had the calve's liver for mains and calamari for starter, it was deliicous.

“'Amore'”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

Went to this restaurant last night after being recommended. Warm welcome, friendly service, food excellent. Reasonable prices for very good size portions, could only manage 2 courses although was tempted to go for one of the mouth watering pud's. Will be going back and will recommend to others. It felt like we was in italy, served real italian food by real it people.

“I don't know why they have to be so rude?”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

We tried to visit this evening which would have been our 5th time - we love this restaurant!!

We did not know that service finished at 2130 which is not a problem for us because we can easily go somewhere else - we arrived at 2140. When we tried to enter the young waiter said he would ask if they could accommodate us. Another member of staff came and when the young waiter asked if we could dine he said very rudely "tell them to come back when we are open if they want to eat...." He then walked off.

Well - we will it be going back wether open or not, they can poke the giant prawns where the sun doesn't shine. Poor service and rude surely staff is not offset by good food.

“Appalling - don't go here - nothing worse that rude staff”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Been to this restaurant many times - spent a lot of money - arrived this evening - polite young man on door explained we were late - obnoxious dark haired waiter came to door and told my party of 4 that 'they should come back when we are open' understand that we were late but rude and unnecessary comments mean we will not go back - their loss.
