The look is Italian from the outside, the food is missing the real Italian taste and flavors. The service was there but you had to call out to getting it. I would not choose the place for anything special, but as a hot meal on...More

The four of us had different meals, and all were delicious. Service from Joe was excellent and it was good value. We'll hopefully be back before we return to the UK.
