“Eat in or take away - either way great food”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Nice variety of Italian food for eat in or take away. Pizzas come in 12 & 14 inch variants. The restaurant does an all you can eat buffer for I think around £11, its great value for money and for those who favour gluttony this is for you. From olives & garlic bread to start with, to 4 different types of pasta, salads, four or five different types of pasta and desserts included too IF you can get that far, all great choices.

Staff are friendly, polite and super efficient. This restaurant gets busy for it's popular, we dined early without a reservation but I suspect later on you would need a table reserving.

Seemed very family friendly which is nice but it comes with the risk of the odd ear piercing screaming brat whose parents seem unable to control them and aren't too bothered that this might be impacting on other diners.

“Very reasonable Italian”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Food is good standard Italian fare. The blokes in our party had the buffet and I think it is pretty good value for guys. Good wine menu with a little variation to the norm. Always has a good atmosphere and is always very busy which speaks for itself.

“Good value and a good feed!”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We could have gone for (probably) fancier options but after a day on the slopes we wanted a good feed - the buffet it was. Good selection of pizza and pasta (even for my veggie requirements), some nice sales and a great dessert. Great for a family meal!
