I had the seafood pancake to start, followed by the salmon tagliatelle. The portions were a very good size and I believe that the tagliatelle was the nicest I have ever tasted. Therefore, when I became full (halfway through my main course), I carried on eating and couldn't seem to stop!! With hindsight, I should have asked for half if... More

Had the early bird menu which is very good value for money. The homemade pate was delicious and the lasagna was also just as good. You can tell this place is traditional and food is fresh. Would recommend

Have been eating here for about 20 years, and the standard is consistently excellent! The menu is varied, and the service very friendly - we are always made to feel welcome. Many thanks!

We ended up here last night having booked the French restaurant over the road but had been confronted by a very rude waiter. The staff here were very friendly and at short notice on a busy Friday night found us a table for 6 people. We had a great time, the food arrived promptly and was very tasty and there... More

This could perfectly be a neighbourhood restaurant in Napoli, Palermo or Roma. Definitely authentic Italian food, not like in the 'Italian' restaurant chains in the UK. This is the real deal. The decor is outdated and the presentation of the dishes is stuck in the 90s, but the food is good, the portions are generous and the service is friendly... More

I went on a Friday evening with family and had the early bird two courses for £11.95. Even at that price I thought it was expensive for the poor quality of food. Worst Italian I have ever had.

Near to home, have often viewed the A board outside. After another place failed to return our booking request, we decided to try it. From the Early Bird menu I had the garlic bread and pate starter followed by steak with a pepper sauce (£2.75 extra), which was good- the steak was cooked as asked and very peppery. There were...

But not more. Atmosphere is fine, a bit dark maybe, relaxed. Generally a bit dated and stuffy though. Staff friendly. Food - choice somewhat limited for Italian, at best average, not very creative, some appears not freshly prepared. So, overall there are probably many better Italians.
