“Good value simple food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

A very popular Italian restaurant which is always busy serving good pizzas and Italian pasta and Italian meat dishes. Good value but food is nothing special, tables are too close together, staff are usually efficient. Best for when you require a quick dinner at a reasonable price. Not for special occasions.

“Service prevents me giving 5 stars”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Lovely location under the colonnade, just as well as it poured down.... the restaurant was packed this Saturday, within 15 mins of our sitting down customers were queuing to get in.
Therefore a very busy night which might reflect the below par service. Although there appeared to be sufficient servers they didn't have allocated tables to manage, you seemed to have a different person every time something was delivered to the table.... I, at one point asked for a glass of red wine, the third waiter eventually brought it.
However, the food we ordered was very good, the ragu of duck with pasta was delicious as was my wife's prawn dish. Good desert all reasonably priced/

“Great atmosphere and consistently good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

A large but static menu, with a wide range of dishes to choose from. Service when busy can be a little slow, but the location and the puddings are the highlight of any visit

“How standards can slip”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

How i wish i could say positive things about this restaurant. The service has slipped somewhat over the past 3 years of coming here. The waiters used to be really friendly and helpful but now its more how quickly they can get you in and away for the next people to come in. They don't smile and for a touristy area they don't seem to have time for you. The food is distinctively average i do recommend the pizzas though just the right amount of toppings. We refuse to go back here and prefer to go to Mama Chows or Le Pied Sur Terre.

“Dessert!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

The main dishes here were good and worthy of a good review. The best part is te dessert menu. It is two pages of different sundae options. My kids (and me) were in heaven. We were with a party of 6 and so we ordered a few. I wish there was such an ice cream option here in my area of Michigan. Would recommend based on dessert alone but the restof the meal was good too. Service was okay. Kind of like everywhere in France. Maybe it is because they don't work for tips. It is very no nonsense. It doesn't bother me. It is just not what I am accustomed to in the US.
