“Nice food and great ambience”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Went with two business colleagues for a working dinner and, in a packed Restaurant, we were the minority. Place was packed with couples and families and none out of place. The food was good - I had Steamed Mussels and a Pizza and both were good. The service was very friendly and helpful but not overbearing and the food came quickly and was hot. All in all it was a nice place with good food and slightly expensive but reasonable. A good place for a casual, romantic or a family dinner.

“Delicious relaxed meal”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

On arrival the restaurant was very busy but throughout the meal the service was second to none. We dod not have to wait at any point for anything. Very friendly service and a lovely relaxed atmosphere. We were allowed to enjoy the meal at our on pace which is always a bonus.

There were 4 of us and all had different choices and we were all very happy with the food.

Will return again soon.

“Nicely done!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant, despite being a chain, is pretty good. The atmosphere and decor are definitely the selling points here.
We went in a big group so the service was a little slower but they did their best. The food arrived for everybody at the same time, which i always think is the most important thing. The food itself is good, if not a little bit pricey for what it is, but a typical modern take on Italian.
All in all it was a pleasant experience.
