Have to say our experience was amazing ! The salmon pasta and Risotto dishes were excellent , the cheesecake to follow was delightful ! Has a paved area on the side of the restaurant which , if the temperature is right I’m sure would be...lovely ! But our outstanding memory is that of the staff , especially the lovely Lodi and unforgettable Gigi !!More

Went with my partner, was absolutely faultless.The venue, the starters,mains and service was all just perfect! Value was good aswell..also, there was non of this rediculous service charge sneakily bolted on either. Excellent:))

This place was recommended to me by a friend who said it was amazing. My experience was awful, the staff were ok but constantly huddled chatting by the kitchen. My starter came out after 5 minutes and was completely cold in the middle. My boyfriends...main was burnt on the outside and dry and dense on the inside swimming in a pool of what looked like water and butter. Didn’t check back until the end by which point we couldn’t be bothered to say anything. Was painful paying at the end for a rubbish meal!More

What a disappointment, this place has gone downhill and certainly isn’t up to the standard it used to be. We said we had a booking, they ignored this and asked if we wanted a table for two to which we said yes. We got shown...to our table and five minutes after ordering the food arrived. We both ordered pasta dishes and they certainly weren’t cooked fresh, the meat was dry and both were lacking the flavour we remember from past visits. Very disappointing as the food here used to be great and we would frequently recommend it. We ordered a selection of breads to come with our meal, the bread was all of the same type just cut different shapes. The waiter could be seen using his phone on the stairs and wanted to pay more attention to that than the customers. The whole experience overall was awful and after being excited about going back I’m afraid we won’t be back again.More

Another excellent lunch at this special restaurant and this time in the covered outside area with such a pleasant and relaxing ambiance. Food and drinks as usual first class from a large selection of Pane, Antipasti, Pasta & Risotto, Pizza, Carne, Pesce and Contorni. We...opted for Risottos - Primavera and Di Mare - both ever so tasty. Yes cafe lattes to finish our catch-up! Service so friendly and attentive.More

We booked as a large party of 24. The restaurant was fantastic. The staff so attentive and gave an incredible service so friendly and efficient. The food was delightful. Everybody enjoyed their meals and commented on how tasty and fresh their choices were. The arcade...area is idyllic and a lovely setting to relax and enjoy your food. Fantastic authentic Italian in a great area of the city. We will return.More

We came here as I remembered it to be a Greta place, things have changed! I’m vegetarian / vegan we asked for a half cheese half tomato bread, it came wrong first time, second time it came and there was still cheese all over the...tomato side. I ordered the soup which I was told Was like minastrone, it wasn’t - it was awful. On top of this Gigi the waiter was rude and didn’t accept any feedback. Seriously, no wonder the Place was dead , next time We will stick to the quality of San Carlo. Never come here, it’s not worth the dramaMore
