One of my favourite places to eat or get take-aways. The food is always fresh and tasty. The bread sticks in the evening are delicious. The atmosphere is great and in winter it is cosy and warm and summer is fresh and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is owner managed, which I think is a big thing, so service is never an issue and quality of food is always great. We have eaten here for lunch and dinner and had take-aways.

For a change we decided to give this restaurant a try. To get someone to firstly seat us was a mission, secondly to get menu's and take our order was a disaster and thirdly, in short, the focaccia was burnt.

It could have just been a bad night for them but it was shocking all round and totally unacceptable!

In saying that, I haven't been here in a while and I am willing to give it another try in the near future.

At this stage I unfortunately do not have much good to say about restaurant.

Excellent, home-cooked Italian fare. The owner, Roberto, is always on hand to make his guests feel welcome. My favourite dishes are the Luderitz oysters, mussles, Alessandro baked pasta and the veal Madagascar. In fact, that is what we order every single time.

Polpetto is in our neighbourhood and we have often seen it on our way to Nandos. We decided to go there as a result of the reviews and are very glad we did so.
The service and value were excellent. I had the Osso Buco and my partner had a steak on ciabatta. The food was delicious and we will definitely be back.
