We didn't book but had no problem getting a table. It's a busy restaurant. I ordered crayfish arrabiatta. I expected it to be spicier. The food is extremely reasonably priced. Lots of main course pasta and pizza options priced at around £5. My friend ordered...More

Went with a group of 10 work colleagues. The service was so slow, took about 30 minutes to get a menu/have our drinks order taken. It then took nearly 1hr 30mins for the food to arrive, and what a disappointment. I don't think one person...More

A group of us go here for our regular get-together, and are always made very welcome. Food is very Italian, and authentic, wine is excellent and reasonably priced. We eat, drink and while the day away and are never rushed. Bread is first rate, always...More
