We had a look at the menu, and judging by the prices we were expecting quite a well prepared and good quality meal. Before I continue, I will mention that there was one really nice gentleman in a blue shirt and a... More

Very helpful accommodating staff were able to find our small party a table on a busy Saturday night in January. Authentic Italian food with well cooked veg. Good value for money and good friendly service. Family's welcome. Booking advised. Good range of wines and liqueurs. Will return.

We had a sharing starter of focaccia, rocket and parmesan shavings which was light and crispy and very tasty. We followed up with a couple of... More

Visited today with a group of nine for a work team Christmas lunch. Everything went smoothly, the food was great on the Christmas menu, good value, and a nice atmosphere even though the restaurant was quite quiet. Service was very friendly and I would definitely recommend.

Thank Andrew M
