If you are looking for somewhere to have a good evening try this restaurant, the food is excellent , the staff friendly and very efficient and there was a fantastic atmosphere on New Year's Eve which made it a very enjoyable night. We had the table for the evening and enjoyed a piper and new year celebrations to see in 2014. Children were made very welcome as well.

The food here is cheap and good value, but not of the highest quality. My pasta was overcooked - a sin for an Italian restaurant. The service was good however. I'm not sure if there are better Italian restaurants in Sunderland, but this one isn't great.

We went there from work as a Christmas lunch before going out,we have always used this restaurant for the christmas meal out.There were four of us as per and were warmly greeted as old friends and sat at our regular table.The starters were pate,deep fried mozzarella,I was told they were lovely,myself and my colleague opted for gamberoni,compared to what used to be served this was very poor,small king prawns instead of plate filling ones with a small bowl of garlic dip.Mains were mainly Medallions of pepe fillet steak and a Pollo Reale,all which were to the normal excellent standard.Sweets and house wine were lovely too.
When the bill arrived(£175) the service charge had been wrote on in pencil and £15 was added, we always tip the waiters and we thought by adding it was a bit cheeky,we paid it not wanting to upset our day out.
We love the food here but this left a sour taste and we all agree we wont be rushing back as there are as good restaurants in Sunderland and by far cheaper

Just enjoyed our latest meal here and thought it was about time I left a review. On arrival we were greeted with a smile and offered drinks, so glad we'd booked our table for 4 in advance as the place was packed. Booking was for 8 and we were seated at 8.20, no worries there as in no rush to be in and out. Yes the service was a bit slow but attentive, but that is only to be expected when a restaurant is full to capacity. The food was excellent with only compliments being discussed around our table (tried the mixed BBQ, tender steak and juicy chicken). Overall great night out with great food as we expected.

First and will be the last time I will visit,the starter was something from Iceland 4 small king prawns,little bit of garnish and small bowl of garlic to dip!

The carbonara was alright but not much on the plate.

Do not try the tetley bitter,nothing like the real tetley.overall the cost of everything far too much for what I got.
