Good meal out, however, over priced for what it is. Friendly staff, however, felt rushed to order and rushed to leave.

The service was brilliant the food excellent the drink a little pricy but will definitely be returning. They managed to seat 10 of us at very short notice and even had colouring activities for the younger members of the family. The food was fresh and tasty and the chips were fantastic, my wife was very happy with the separate gluten... More

Nothing to write home about. The food's rather bland. The pizza's dry--they really scrimp on the cheese, and the pasta is no better than one whipped up at home. Although a restaurant, basically it's Italian fast-food.

My husband and I were visiting Wells and went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We had booked online. During the afternoon we popped in to ask if we could possibly have a table by the back window for a view of the Bishops palace and moat - all beautifully lit at night. Unfortunately there is only one table... More

The usual Ask menu, so decent Italian, in a large restaurant that was looking like it will be packed with kids (we had an early lunch). Get a table by the window at the back to have views of the bishops palace, or at the front for ones of the market square.

Is RACISM alive and Well(s) here. You'd better just Ask!! After being accosted by a Red headed youth (hardly old enough to serve I would think) who cast his gaze up and down our mixed race foster children before announcing "I sit people at tables here!... have you a reservation? No? I'll just check if it's okay for you to... More

We have been as a family a few times now and some how I always find it a little over priced for what you actually get. The staff are friendly and the food and drinks are good but just over priced. The kids enjoy going so that's why we go
