Had a really good meal here with my family from 15 years of age to forever. We all enjoyed it. The service was excellent and my Pasta was superb. My daughter said it was the best pasta she had ever had. I was reluctant to go because the last time I went (under different management) it was only ok. Won't... More

Visited the restaurant last week with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Thoroughly enjoyed our starters and main meal although we were too full to manage a pudding as well. Good waiter service and I must say thank you to the staff as I lost my necklace (dodgy catch), but realized as soon as we got home. My husband... More

We nipped in here just because it was on our way to where we were going. Didn't really expect much and it was really quiet when we got there (only around 4oclock to be fair) The staff were really nice though and the place is nice inside so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did, Every... More

Food average but non acrylic drinks shocking price. £2 for a small.glass of lemonade. Musbe made with gold dust. Also thought when menu.said garlic bread presumed that's what you got, but no it was garlic on pizza base. Altogether not great

We are an Italian restaurant serving high quality food. I am surprised about your comments about the garlic bread! We're you expecting a baguette that you buy in the local supermarket? Visit any Italians and you will be served your garlic bread on fresh homemade pizza dough. The price of soft drinks start at £1.20 a £2 for a 330ml... More
