It's one star because I can't select 'none'. If you like half empty Italian restaurants with a very old clientele, then this is the place for you. To be fair, it's clean, toilets are clean, staff are friendly. It's not all bad. I'm not Italian,...More

This comfortable, well-appointed, contemporary environment serves cut-above-the-average Italian food with care, attention, and consistency. Efficient and friendly service. A very enjoyable experience.

Very friendly family run restaurant. The menu is excellent and the off menu food is even better. Super house wines and irresistible desserts. Highly recommended!

Classic Italian restaurant in so many ways, including service charges and any vegetables being charged on top of all main courses. Had a good evening here, with good food and wine but not quite up to the mark for the cost. On starters the Tortelloni...More
