What a great dinner and delightful staff! We both had the twice cooked goats' cheese soufflé with rocket pear and Parmesan salad. Full of flavour and great value for money. And a delicious affogato followed. Would come back again in a heartbeat!

Good restaurant in Kensington if you are looking for a nice meal with a family atmosphere. The Pizza here is good, although not cooked in a traditional wood fired oven, it was nice and I will return.

Lamb was delicious, steak perfect BUT the pasta is always mushy and well overcooked. The pasta sauce is nice on the cabonara but is totally spoilt with mush. I keep trying it because I like the flavours but the texture is yuk and falling apart. Three of us had it and was all the same. Shame , it is one... More

Enjoyed my meal. Have been here many times and menu is pretty much the same doesn't change. Food is consistently good.. You have a good choice with pasta, pizzas and nice mains. Staff nice welcoming overall pleasant experience. Restaurant can get quite noisy with kids so not idea for a romantic meal.

There were 7 of us so not an overly large group and we booked an early dinner for 5.30pm for Miss 7. So we order. We wait 45mins for 4 entrees ( French Onion soup), one of which wasn't hubby's. Things weren't good and... More

We went for pizzas (snack size) and these proved enough for us. They were both delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive. They offered a good menu and I would return again.

We popped in here as it was around from our motel and had read reviews. We didn't have a booking but got a table Straight away on a Sunday night. We opted for two smaller pizzas instead of one large. And glad we did to try different options! The salmon with blue cheese was amazing. And the meat lovers was... More
