“Good quality food, great value ”
Reviewed November 25, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I planned a meal without booking and chose here as we have been in the past.
There was a November offer for 2 courses £10 ordered before 7:30pm
The quality and service were excellent.
I had whitebait as a starter and the plate was overflowing. I had liver as a main which was beautifully cooked. I was given extra vegetables as I chose not to have mash with it.
My friend's fish dish was unavailable but she was offered salmon by the chef which was not on the set menu at no extra cost.
The service was friendly and unobtrusive
This is an improvement on my last visit there about 2 years ago.

“Good meal for bargain price”
Reviewed October 21, 2013

We have not been to this restaurant before but had seen good reviews on it. We opted for their October Special 2 course meal for £10 each. This consists of a starter or dessert plus main meal from a set menu. There was a reasonable choice on the set menu. It took a little while for the starters to arrive but both were well laid out and substantial. For the main we ordered sirloin steak (7 oz steak), my Wife would have liked a pizza but they had run out of dough. Overall it was good quality meal for a bargain price. Wine was reasonably priced for quality.Service was pleasant and helpful. Unlike a lot of Italian restaurants there was no service charge added to the bill which was nice. One thing is that they only accept cash no cards, so make sure you have sufficient cash

“Great for special occassions”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

The food is great, excellent portions and the staff are friendly.

Because this is a family run restaraunt, the staff are friendly and helpful unlike some chain establishments and it makes for the evening and meal. We always go there for special occassions.

This time was tio celebrate my step daughter getting an excellent position for her future career.

“Reasonable Food”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Dined here recently with family.

The menu is extensive, covering all the classic Anglo/Italian choices that you expect in a local Italian. The portions are very generous and everything seemed freshly prepared.

I've given this an average rating because the drinks and food service was really slow and infuriating at times.

“Best Italian in the area”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Best food I have ever eaten at an Italian. May wait a while for the food but is worth the wait. All the puddings are freshly made on site that day. People even go just for desert. Everything is fabulous and I wouldn't put anything down. Definately worth a visit.
