“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

We went here having been told it was the best Italian outside Italy. Well, it isn't. The pizza is fine, the pasta is okay but not brilliant for the price, the other meals were poor both quality and value for money. My chicken in honey and mustard sauce (is that even Italian?) was overcooked and tough, the sauté potatoes were burnt, and the veg - a dull selection, definitely not Italian - were so over cooked I did wonder if they came from a tin. The service was friendly but very very slow. Quite a nice relaxed atmospere but that's the best I can say.

“Cheap and Cheerful”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Went here on a Saturday night and thought it was really good! I don't understand the comments below?! our waitress was very attentive and the food was great. Didn't wait long at all and they even changed my dish slightly as I wanted a different sauce! Very good value for money and good atmosphere. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

“NOW FAUSTO'S Good food but terrible service”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

NOW faustos
on walking past during the day we popped in to book for the evening prices were good so gave it a try.
Service was poor only 2 waitressed one who kept running over the road to the pizza place, staff were stressed which made for awful atmosphere , loud music on in keeping with surroundings. We waited ages for order to be taken and ages for food, gave up waiting for dessert menu so they lost sales.
can't see the place lasting long food was good and got loads for such cheap price but service v poor and waitress didn't like complaints one bit!!
try it with caution

“A good chance find”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

We visited this restaurant based, initially, on walking past and reading the menu. The restaurant was clean and tidy and the menu, although fairly limited, was tempting We were greeted warmly by the waitress and chose two different chicken dishes, both of which were delicious. We could not fault our evening, which was good value for money and very pleasant.
