Four of us had dinner here. Two shared a reasonably priced bottle of prosecco and two had Bushy's Isle of Man bottled beer (there was no draught). We all had excellent pizzas with a good range of tasy toppings. Although we were full, we also managed a couple of chocolately desserts - my "Chocolate Heaven" was aptly named. Service (although it has been criticised by others)was very good for us - mostly carried out by a cheerful young man who originally hailed from Tipperary. And although located in side a small shopping centre the ambience was really good. I would be very happy to return.

Handy location and service was quite good ,but the food was very under par .It was very busy but that shouldn't be an excuse.To be fair I think it is more a Pizzaria than a restaurant,the pizzas did look good and the garlic bread was delicious but unfortunately we had pasta,so the obvious tip is to stick to pizzas.

Our food was good and served in reasonable quantities, but our bowl of olives to start didn't arrive until our cooked meal was served.There appear to be plenty of waiting staff, but they seem to be disorganised. The duty manager / head waiter appeared to be having to chase too many different things.

The service was great. Really friendly and polite staff. Didn't have to wait long to be served. The meal was lovely and they were generous portions. Would definitely go back and have the pizza again!

We went as part of a large family group, having been there on two occasions before, in the same format. Our party ordered mains only and had a round of drinks. And then we waited. And waited. And waited.
Eventually the food arrived and the vary majority of us agreed that it was not of the same high standard that we had experienced on previous visits. Overall it was poor and the service not much better.
