This is a lovely individual Italian, with such friendly staff. I have always had good experience with the food here. The staff are very accommodating and happy to explain the menu. This is such a good find and I love visiting here as much as I can.

This is not a good Italian restaurant.The food is not well prepared or presented and the deserts are disappointing.I think it's a good place for a drink with friends though but not for people who like good food.

You don't understand Italian food

My partner and I came here with real hope for some tasty Italian cuisine. However, I don't think I've ever been so disappointed with a meal out. My partner had bruschetta which was soaked in olive oil and was just a right mess to look at. My starter came with half a baguette that you can buy in a supermarket frozen and warm up in the oven -tasted so cheap. Surely it doesn't take much to have a nice basket of fresh bread or at least quality bought bread?! Our mains were another story. I had fettuccine which was most certainly not fresh and from a packet. The olives and artichokes in my sauce were definitely from a jar of antipasti in oil/brine that again you get in a supermarket- no flavour whatsoever. I can't understand how for the main ingredients of a dish you would use them from in brine/oil. The marina sauce was watery and tasteless. My partner had spaghetti with seafood in which the mussels were rubbery and 'tangy' which was worrying. The sauce again tasteless.
Nothing I saw/ate was fresh or real homemade produce and my partner and I both agreed you get much tastier food in any chain Italian restaurants. If you have tastebuds and enjoy fresh food then really don't bother.

My short business trip to the area was anything but fruitful! I dined at this restaurant by the advice of hotel receptionist and that's how the trip ended on a good note.
Served by the friendly young waitress I had Calamari to start and Risotto Veneziano as main and Tiramisu to finish this lovely culinary experience.
