We ate here recently while on a short stay in the Isle of Wight and picked this Italian restaurant from the good reviews to celebrate our anniversary. We hadn't booked a table but were seated quite quickly and our orders were taken speedily. I didn't think the menu was overly extensive and struggled to find something that I wanted to eat. I chose the pork with apple and cider and to be fair it was quite tasty. We waited almost an hour for our main course to arrive-luckily we weren't starving but I did feel this was too long to wait.
We had three different waitresses during our meal -the first noticed we didn't have a candle but one never arrived, the second did bring a candle although slightly used and then the third took that candle away and brought a new one!!
At the end of our meal I put some money on the table ready to leave a tip and when the waitress came to to our table with the terminal for my card, before she even let me pay she grabbed the money off the table and said 'I'll take the tip' which I thought was slightly bad form!! I did joke with my husband it was a good job the money wasn't meant for a cab or something!!
In my husbands words the experience wasn't terrible it just could have been better-a same really as it was our anniversary.
Would I go back? I don't think I would to be honest.
