I have been to this restaurant on several occasions, always hoping it will be better than it actually is. The staff are very pleasant however the food varies from reasonably good to poor and after tonight's dinner I won't be rushing back. For entree I had arancini - 4 per serving which was generous and they were tasty although I think the accompanying aioli came out of a jar. My husband had pattas bravas - a small bowl of baked or roasted potato pieces which was ok but topped with what appeared to be Mayo & ketchup which was disappointing. For main I had linguini marinara and my husband had the gnocci special. The positives were the prawns and mussels on the pasta and the gnocci which were excellent but both dishes were let down by the sauce which obviously came out of a bottle and was very insipid. Between the 2 plates we also picked out 7 full cloves of garlic which was not palatable - so disappointing! On leaving we pointed out our misgivings which appeared to be taken on board, but I'm not sure whether it will make any difference.

This restaurant has to be one of the best ever. Their pizzas are to die for. Very fresh ingredients and cooked while you wait. Try their garlic prawns done in the pizza oven. Heavenly!

Seafood paella and lamb chops were great. Really nice and well presented. However it was let down by the dreadful and disorganised service. Ages to take the order. Had to go to the counter to get the drinks. Tables left uncleared and several people walking out in disgust after waiting and waiting. A real pity as it could be great.
