A busy restaurant with delicious tasting foods. They got our booking time mixed up but we didn't have to wait long really for the table. The waiters were witty and child friendly. They allowed us adjust the menu for one of our kids who took a liking to mussels!! It's great value for money during the week with most mains at €12 each. House wine was delicious . People keep coming back here for the great food and value which is why it's such a success.

A fabulous restaurant with delicious Italian food - definitely one of the best around for authenticity - such a pity the service can be very hap hazzard. The food is very well priced especially the early bird is excellent value. Will definitely return

We were told on arrival that we had to leave by 7. This was fine by us although no one else who arrives after us was told the same. Waiter was a bit abrupt but the food more than adequate up for it. Would go again.

We were casually driving through area and stopped in for lunch. What a lovely surprise to find amazing food and cosy upscale atmosphere. We had gnocchi which was some of the best i've ever had. It was rich but not greasy and the pasta tender and fresh. Our latte was served beautifully and the only disappointment was that we could not get the apple crumble for take away.

We usually get a take away but decided to dine in as we hadn't since our kids were born. The place was very busy but we had booked so we were accommodated quickly. We asked for our kids' meals to be brought with our starters which was done however there was such a long wait between our starter and main courses that the kids were practically finished eating by the time they arrived. I know they were busy but we saw people who arrived after us getting served before us both with starters and mains. The food as always was delicious and my kids enjoyed theirs too. Overall we had a lovely meal but it was a shame the wait between everything was so long. Felt like we were forgotten about. Would go again though.
