Wicked Food, great interpretation of Italian cooking. A joy to the taste buds, give it a try, but don't expect traditional Italian cos it ain't.

Had heard some mixed reviews prior to visiting, but took some friends for a night out and it was spot on. Great food and drink and really great atmosphere.
Cannot wait to visit again.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch with 4 children aged from 11 to 15. There was something for everyone on the menu plus efficient service with a smile. Will definitely go again.

Seriously! This has to be the darkest restaurant I've ever eaten in. Two of the four of us had to resort to pocket torches to read the menu. Our table was right in a corner and had fairly obviously been changed from a two person table to a four person one. Our server couldn't get around the table and had to lean across two of us. This he did very well and always apologised for having to do this.
Food and wine was very good but a small point aginst was the number of dishes unavailable on the night, the list of which, of course, included the one I wanted! It was a Wednesday evening so perhaps the midweek levels of availability are lower?
The pumpkin and smoked mozzarella nachos were very good but the arrabiata sauce was decidedly less than the advertised "fiery". The "giant game meatball" (ordered in place of the sadly missing lamb stew) was full of flavour and with a good and plentiful sauce and excellent , well seasoned polenta. No room for dessert but good coffee finished off an enjoyable evening.
Value for money? Not sure. Overall probably. I'd certainly be pleased to go there again, but I'd take a torch!
