Firstly I would like to point out that our last visit was on a Groupon offer.... which I dont think should lower the standards of the meals but who knows...
I used to love this place, it felt like an authentic Italian but we left disappointed recently. As a starter we ordered garlic bread with cheese and little fried fish - fish was nice but garlic bread was without cheese and it really was just a garlic buttered baguette...
For the main I had tagliatelle with cream, mushroom and bolognese sauce which tasted like Dolmio pasta bake sauce. My boyfriend ordered a pizza which was burnt at the bottom and even though there was a spicy sausage on it, it didnt really tasted of anything. We have returned the pizza and ordered a starter portion of Bolognese which was cooked really fast therefore quite watery.
Otherwise service is very good, waiters are really nice but what a shame on the food...

Had a great meal here tonight the service and ambience was superb. The staff were super attentive and the food arrived in good time. We used to eat here many years ago and it's safe to say the quality is still as good as it was back then. Do yourself a favour and pop in for a bite to eat, you won't be disappointed!

Haven't been here for a few years but was really looking forward to it as it used to be great. First off the restaurant was cold and stayed that way the whole evening. The table next to us were asked to move after their starters for a difficult customer! Small starter but tasted good. Main looked good and tasted ok but all meals were only just about warm. Had lemon pancakes for dessert and they were ok, just not much to it. Service was ok, given the restaurant was busy, but not offered any more drinks or much opportunity to ask for more. Waiter came over as we were discussing having coffee to move us on so the next customers could have our table. We were shocked and certainly won't be back!
