We looked forward to our meal having read so many positive reviews. Our experience was extremely negative. Our waiter was very courteous but service was disorganised. In contrast to other diners, we were offered no bread prior to the meal, an oversight that was pointed...More

Had very nice meal here recently. Atmosphere in restaurant was good, service excellent and staff friendly. Prices excellent. We ordered tagliatelle with chicken and tagliatelle with beef. Delicious but more pasta and less less meat. Would recommend a visit here if you're in the area.

There service level is excellent. We were tended on the whole time and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Their wine list and food menue offers great choices and everything is fresh.

This is somewhat an old fashioned restaurant in decor, menu and service style. That said the food is excellent as is the wine list.
