Went to Joe rigatoni's prior to going to the theatre. It was quiet, maybe 7 tables taken. We were sat near the window, the service was good, the staff were attentive but not too much, the food was very nice and you were given plenty. I would go again.

Against: The car park is very small and you can't really park on the busy road outside.

went for a meal with some friends. wouldn't have been my first choice as went when first opened and terrible. its still terrible. especially if you compare it to the Italian on hornbeam park. i had the pork, it was over cooked and therefore tough, ridiculous. couldn't taste the meat at all, half an hour of 'chew chew chew' sauce was a gelitinous mass of filth. asked for bread with meals, these came first, main waiter was consistently rude. food was what you would expect from a chain, (is it a chain?) really disappointed.
i was reluctant to go but some people had said it was good....what???
we were all cringing at the waiter's behaviour, really bad mannered. the food was circa wacky warehouse....arrrgggh!
if you want good, well cooked, Italian food go to the one on hornbeam park, well worth the trip out if town!

We've just enjoyed a very pleasant evening at this lovely Italian restaurant courtesy of a Groupon voucher. Good atmosphere with lovely staff.
We all ordered fillet steak cooked perfectly to everyone's preference, the requested blue steak was complimented as the "best cooked blue steak ever had in the UK".
Side orders were delicious as were the desserts... dessert of the day was fabulous.
House wine very good, and value excellent. Will definitely return :)

We have just returned home from this restaurant absolutely deflated.I intially attempted to book by telephone,but I was told severely that the only take email booking for 'Groupon' vouchers.
We were show to our table and treated with no warmth or respect.Both Waiters gave us no eye contact and were very hostile and aloof,as if we were a nuisance.
The food however was very good,but the whole atmosphere was strained and unwelcoming,we were not offered further drinks or the dessert menu.Having asked for the bill on two occasions ,but ignored.So we had to got to the counter,whereby they had slapped a 10% service charge !
We will never return to this restaurant.
