Mmmm it all somewhat makes sense now ! This place has been discussed with some heated debate around it's sudden ascension in the rankings from 1 time reviewers and an awful lot of "Italians" Well, we were nearby one lunchtime last week so decided to give a try and form our own opinion.
Service was okay, not overly friendly but efficient enough. We both ordered mixed meats platter with bread and olives and a couple of cokes. & my friend ordered a Margarita Pizza. Nothing to really complain about food wise except perhaps the portion for the prices charged. Plus we were the only people in at lunchtime ? And on passing in the evenings there were never too many punters in there. They do also own the ice cream shop which has also shot up in the rankings...........and ice cream shop is suddenly a restaurant ? God knows why it was allowed to be listed in the first place.
So, we asked for the bill and a small guy who had been in the kitchen came out, asks us if we enjoyed our lunch, we were pretty non committal & then he says "do you use Tripadvisor" my friend advised that we did and then he shoves a business card in our hand and implored us to write a review and give an excellent rating. I advised him this was against the TA rules and he just laughed and wished us good afternoon !!!
TA review abuse at it's very best
