“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

In a good location just off the square, pleasant staff but very disappointing food. It's cheap but I'd rather pay more and get some quality. Will not return.

“Bit of a rush but delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We arrived at 10 to 2 and the manager said we could have a table if we didn't mind hurrying as they had a christening party coming in at 3, a tad annoying but we we were served with cheer and the food was absolutely delicious. We joked when we payed that we may receive discount next time, we'll see!

“Enjoyable.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

A companion and I sat down around 2-00.
Easily put on a table,no fussing about. Quick service although not all that friendly however when our joint starter came (bruschetta) It was alright,however not much.I would have preferred if they had plated it for two as we had mentioned we were to share it.When the main course came out I thouroughly enjoyed it however a little cold.At the end of my meal they took a while to bring the bill however when it came two sweets were served with it (a nice touch) Overall effienctly run but a few tweaks here and there would do no harm.

“Will never go again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2013

Awful. Booked a table a month in advance for a special birthday (relatives coming down) but still squashed into a corner between the kitchen & the loos so people forever coming past us to serve or visit the toilet. One elderly relative had a huge plant hitting her head the whole time. Asked if we could be moved and were basically told to put up with it. Food wasn't much good either. Staff were rude and uncaring.

“Really good pizzas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

Lovely restaurant. My husband and I were staying in the area and fancied an italian meal so booked last minute. The staff were very friendly and the food delicious and very fresh. Would definitely go back again if we're in the area.
