Been coming here for many years. Never had a bad experience.Staff are efficient and polite. Food always plentiful, freshly cooked and delicious. Big queues of a weekend as you can't book but it's worth the wait, and you can have a drink while your waiting. First class Italian restaurant.

The place was full so as soon as people leave the table is cleared and people are seated. There are plenty of waiters and waitresses so orders are quickly taken and food is brought out. You can order Half a pizza or half a pizza and half a pasta dish I have never seen that before. The students eating there... More
