The good bit: excellent food, well prepared and presented. A welcoming waiter. BUT: the loud and awful music made it seem like an evening spent in Poundland in December or at a kids' Christmas disco. It wasn't even good Christmas music (NB, it's still November)....More

Having eaten here many times we have never, ever had poor service or food. The food is locally sourced and extremely well cooked and presented. My husband is Italian and I myself have spent much time in Italy and can honestly say the food is...More

Food was delicious at a reasonable price. Fairly small restaurant, giving a pleasant relaxed atmosphere. The service was friendly, nothing was too much trouble.
