First visit to this place was ok ,order was taken and then we waited and waited ,spotted pizza at the pass then it stayed there there until it was cold !
Complained, ate what was there and left.
Second time was a different matter again.
Waited at door ,staff stared and looked elsewhere we left without being offered a table and of course no food.
What a dreadful place.

Such a nice atmosphere - whether its lunch or dinner, inside or outside, absolutely love it. The only one that may rival it is the ASK in Winchester - but both have character, great service and the best italian food around.
This one is characterful and in the centre of town. The menu is the same as all the others - so around £8-10 per main meal. I never pay full price for it though, as there are always offers online (2 for 1 on main meals atm!).
The only downside is that parking is nearly impossible - with the waitrose carpark being the nearest one i can think of!

Went for early lunch on a Sunday as a family group of 10 with young kids, teenagers, parents and grandparents in the party. The place is unique and our waitress was fantastic - very chatty, accurate and efficient. The food was excellent and service was well timed. Would go back without hesitation.

alright food, nothing to go mad about, risotto is lovely, chips okay. building is amazing but you are squashed in!
sometimes staff can be brilliant, but sometimes it can be hard to get there attention.
alot of children go to ask, so if your not a 'fan' of screaming children while you trying to eat this place isnt for you.
