When an Italian restaurant has no Pinot Grigio left at 8pm on New Year's Eve then alarm bells sound. The house Sauvignon Blanc had a 2014 date on it which is not good. A table for two of us on New Year's Eve wasn't a problem to accommodate the evening before which should also have rung some alarm bells. The... More

Booked by friends for our annual Xmas outing. Was as I expected. Will never go again. No atmosphere, probably some of the worst food I have seen in a while and very over priced. Will not be going again.

Twelve of us dined here last evening for my husband’s birthday. The seating arrangements were dire, four round tables shoved together with big gaps in between were not fit for purpose. The whole place was packed which we could appreciate (tis the season after all) However, nothing had prepared us for the level of noise not only from other diners... More

We visited yesterday as a group of 12 including children to celebrate by dads 70th birthday. We booked for 7pm and expected a nice relatively quiet family meal. How wrong could we have been the restaurant has an open venue upstairs which caters for private functions and christmas parties. It is not separated from the restaurant in anyway so it... More

This restaurant is tucked away down a side street but glad that we found it and ventured in. Very attentive service, nice surroundings and the good is great-decent portions and very tasty. Excellent value for money. It may not be in the centre of the city but definitely worth the few minutes walk to get there-you'll be glad u did!

Went or a quick dinner before the theatre. Don't usually go here but the Italian we usually use was full. Not many people in so lacking atmosphere. No early bird deals, probably why it was almost empty..You have to pay for parking if you want to park near the restaurant. The waiter brought bread but it was dry - obviously... More

Booked the function room for my daughters naming party, and it was completely ruined by the rude nonsensical manager demanding more money. The function room is advertised as "free". So we paid for a 35 person buffet (my husband was informed that paying for that many would easily feed 50 people). Not even half way through the event, two members... More

Further to your contemptuous and deceptive review, I find myself compelled to clarify the accusations you have stated. Initially, on booking the function room, you advised myself that you wished to book for 40 to 50 adults and a few children. As a family orientated restaurant, I wavered any payment for the children and informed you the buffet per head... More
