We've been to this restaurant a couple of times and have always enjoyed the experience. The pizza is lovely and fresh (my favourite is the chicken one, although I know Italians don't put chicken on a pizza, I'm glad they do at this restaurant!) and the nutella pizza - oh wow... We bring our two young kids and they are well looked after. We'll be back!

Solid family Italian with good food and not an over the top bill at the end! We had a great salami and tomato pizza and spaghetti/meatballs that my very fussy husband really enjoyed. The house salad of greens, snow peas and avocado was delicious. Also enjoyed the waiter - his witty banter and professionalism. Only gripe- the decor needs a total refresh, but at these prices....

This is a pizza and pasta restaurant.
We weren't told until we had been seated, given menus, and wanted to place our order, that they were not serving pizza that night.
We spoke to the waiter about two different breads for starters, but settled on one to order - when the order came, we got both.
There were four of us, and we each ordered a main pasta dish. One dish was served, but the other three weren't served until half an hour later, after we had to ask them to check.
The waiter told us he saw the first meal come out and that he thought that it came out quickly, but he was very busy and forgot about checking.
So we had one person eating their meal very slowly, waiting for the other meals to arrive, and feeling very foolish. When the other meals did arrive, the remainder of the first meal (about 50%) was cold.
We were offered coffee and dessert on the house because of the above, which we declined as we just wanted the experience to end.
But this just emphasised the disregard they have for their customers, as our meal and our evening was totally ruined.
Needless to say I will never go back.

We attended our work Christmas Party in early December and had the room upstairs fit for 30+ people. The service from Sean was amazing, the food cooked by Anthony was awesome and the bar attendance from Maurizio was outstanding! All my work colleagues were thoroughly entertained and there was nothing I would do differently next year, except stay longer. There was no rush or time restrictions put on us, nobody wanted to leave. Thankyou to you all for making our Christmas event a huge success.

Have been here many times and would come back many more. It is a lovely space and is a place to relax with family and friends, enjoy a good meal and plenty of vino. Their level of hospitality is exceptional and the staff will go out of their way to take care of their customers. Really superb service. They are also able to organise a great function and have excellent packages. Very happy to come back here again and again.
