“The real deal”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I came here for the first time as a visitor with a large group of academics and researchers from a local higher education institution. From the moment of arrival and warmest of welcomes through to a quite excellent creme brule the whole experience was a delight. The service was attentive but unobtrusive and the quality and pride in the food was very evident. We were a large and boisterous group with our own room upstairs and it was remarkable how efficient yet informal the service was. Great atmosphere, especially downstairs in the main restaurant. A smile arrived on my face as I walked in and stayed there all evening. Highly recommended.

“Dont bring young kids”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I have to say usually i love this place but i brought my family, including my niece and nephew and once the main course was finished the, usually pleasant, staff were quite pushy with regards dessert. I was offered to see the menu but declined however I was informed that the waiter would bring it anyway, then once we received it i declined again, to which the waiter said "who would like some lovely dessert", speaking directly to my niece. Now my niece is 9 years old and it obese, and i felt that he quite deliberately targeted her. After which yet another waiter approached the table offering dessert!
Thankfully she did not want dessert, after what was to be fair a lovely meal, but if she has thrown a fit it would have ruined a nice evening. Our meal came to just over 100 euro for 3 adults and 2 kids inc wine, so i think we had been good customers but feel that the waiters pushiness was unnecessary. It may be paranoia but it felt like restaurant policy to push desserts which after a good meal left a bad taste.

My dear customers first I thank you for taking the time to write this unexpected comment, specially when the owner is physically there 6 days a week ,together with the manager to avoid to get this kind of comments on trip advisor that can easily be handled directly with my self Emiliano; specially when as you said as well, is not your first time in the restaurant . just letting you know if some body offered more than once the dessert menu maybe because coffee and tea or other drinks are also on the menu, or probably because any kids meals come with dessert or ice cream included in the price and the waiter wanted to make sure to give you something that you already paid for . I don’t believe that any of my staff would target people on their size especially a child .We like to put extra attention to the kids that come in the restaurant especially when i m a parent myself and we want them to remember us in a positive way when they come in the next time . it is not restaurant policy to push desserts . if you didn’t want your niece to have dessert maybe you should of spoken to myself directly and I would honour this request instead to write ; not bring young kids ‘ as that comment I took very personal ...... regards: emiliano

“Sides were a complete let down”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Decided to treat ourselves to a meal out. Starters really nice. Ordered fillet steak for main. Ordered medium but came out very well done. Don't mind that as it was good cut. Big dissapointment was the side of roast potatoes (the ones you by frozen and reheat) along with sliced carrots and garden peas. Ruined the experience. Zero effort from the kitchen. I'm not one for presentation either but the peas were just tossed on top of the carrots. Won't be going back and I love Italian food. Service was great. If you have to go there avoid pot and veg sides as you will be dissapointed.
