Not the warmest of welcomes you would expect from and Italian when visiting at 5.30pm. The restaurant was dead so no pressure. The Maître de made us feel like a burden rather than early bird easy diners. Food was ok. Plenty of it. My husbands Lasagne was not the best he said it was as if the herbs and spices had been missed. My pasta was nice. I would visit again we may have caught them off guard turning up 10 mins after opening!

At first, we were put off because of its appearance, a modern building up some steps off a service road. But we carried on in and it was well worth it.

Service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent.

We visited around Christmas 2010 with my sister-in-law and her husband. We were seated quickly and had a lovely evening (although the very reasonaly priced bottle of wine may have contributed to that!). The food was delicious and at £20 per person including plenty of drinks, we found the prices very good for the amount we consumed.

Visited here on 26.11.12 with mates to celebrate a frinds birthday. We went early to qualify for the early bird menu. If you are in before 7pm you can have 2 courses from a limited choice menu for £8.95. Actually there are quite a few choices and you can either have starter & main or main & pudding. We all went for Starter & main as I had made a birthday cake for our friend. The service was lighthearted & friendly, at no time did we feel rushed we actually took our time and were ther for over 3 hours. The food was good and portions average, I had pate then Pollo alla Crema with veg & potatoes and a lovely creamy sauce with mushrooms in. Great value. The house red was good so no need to choose a more expensive wine. The restaurant was quiet but it was a Monday and we were the 3rd table to have a birthday. They didn't mind that I had brought a cake, they evn added an indoor firework for us and played happy birthday over the music system. To top it all off the cake was taken into the kitchen and 5 slices appeared on plates that had been decorated with chocolate & dusted with cocoa powder,

We'll all certainly go again great value for money.

Thirteen of us went to Tinos to celebrate our Ruby wedding anniversary, (thirteen, but nothing unlucky about choosing Tinos) We were welcomed with smiling faces and shown to the bar area. A little later we were told our table was ready, "but no hurry, just come through when you are ready."
The service continued to be of the same standard all night with friendly waiters always on hand for anything we wanted.
Our daughter in law had brought us a cake, baked by herself, which the staff cut up and served at the end of the night, along with bringing out some flowers for the wife, nothing to much trouble.
And, THE FOOD. Everybody enjoyed everything, you can't say better than that.
Thanks Tinos for a great night.
