“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

Went on a busy Saturday night and were taken straight to a table for two. The Food was excellent and the staff were very friendly and courteous as always. We ordered a bottle of Pinot Grigio which was opened at the table but we weren't asked to taste. When we picked up the glasses it smelled "musty." We informed the waiter who took it away without any fuss and the Manager came straight back with a new bottle which he opened and we tasted. He agreed it was "corked" and was extremely apologetic and didn't make us feel as if we had been a nuisance. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and once again on leaving the Manager asked if the new wine was ok and again apologised. We will return again for another special occasion.

“Below Average Restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

We booked this for my daughters 12 birthday meal. There where 16 of us on a Sunday having the Sunday Meal Deal / Christmas Meal Day. The service was good to start of with, but deteriorated rapidly as more costumers entered the restaurant.
Our starters all came at different time, with some of our party having eaten theres before, others had even started. The Main Course was even worse with the side orders and 2 meals only turning up 4-5 minutes after others.(this is not an exaggeration).
The staff seemed over stretched and could not multi task.
I had a fantastic meal there several years ago, so the Chief and head waiter must have moved on over the past few years.
The Value for money was not that bad, but I will not be going back for a long time.

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

We went for the Sunday Deal, allthough the price was good the food was a real dissapointment, my minestrone soup was just a mish mash of vegetable leftovers with a minute amount of pasta, my sole was 2 small round balls of fish on a bed of shredded carrots and salad with a really salty filling in the middle, my wifes pasta arriabata she complained of it being boring after a while plus it went cold too quick, the sweets where no doubt bought in, the staff where pleasant though but I would rather have a good meal experience though.

“Not the best service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

The restaurant was busy and the service not the best. The main course had way too much sauce on it and drowned the flavour of the meat.

“Another visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

I have visited the above eatery a couple of times. I love Italian food and this is the finest for miles around. The staff are always glad to see you especially the owner who always greets his diners personally. Nothing is to much trouble. Highly recommended
