I was on business with Italians, real ones, from Italy, and our organiser decided to book here. The food is good and plentiful but to a man the Italians said "this isn't Italian food"!

We've eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The food is authentically Italian and the portions are generous-enough to take home for a second meal. The stuffed mushrooms are especially good. The restaurant is very popular for birthdays, graduations, proms and...More

I lived in Italy for 23 years, and I know what Italian food is supposed to taste like. So I am giving this restaurant a two only because the staff was excellent. They really took care of you. But the eggplant parmesan was mushy overcooked...More

Hmm depends on the day really. If you were reserving on the weekend or Friday, your situation would probably sit you in a booth or small table. Outside seating is small but I think you would enjoy a better time inside.
