Had a great meal here tonight with my girlfriend. First time ever going in and was very impressed. The pizza's were mouth watering good and the icecream was to die for. The meal was very well priced I have to give a large tip for the service for the price I was paying! I was also given a Vittoria card as the staff could tell how much we enjoyed it which made it feel that extra bit special.

The only downside was an older "thinks he is a master in all things food and drink" man who was giving the Chef abuse about his pizza not being Italian. After he was shouting the atmosphere was shot but that was him just being a selfish douche with no respect for anyone.

Will be back and will recommend to all friends. 11/10.

Had lunch here today. My friend had the burger which she assured me was nice. I had the battered fish. The batter was quite soggy and the tartare sauce looked as if it had been sitting for a while. There were a lot of little flies near our table which spoiled the experience a little.

Thank you for your review. We experienced a soda fountain leak and has since been cleared and cleaned. I am sorry for the inconvenience that the small flies may have caused.

Thank you for your kind review.

We were there as part of a wedding group last Friday. The food was above average, and the wine was delicious. What really impressed me was the staff. Nothing was too much trouble. Our whole party was waited on enthusiastically. Their attention to detail and overall friendliness rounded off an exceptional meal. Thank you for contributing to my brother's special day.

I trust you took advantage of seating before 5pm and the children eating for £1.00. All the proceeds go to charity.

Thank you for your excellent review.
