Really nice food in pleasant surroundings. Staff are friendly and attentive. Although the place was packed we didnt have to wait long for our meals. Recommended to all who enjoy Italian cuisine.

Excellent food and service, reasonable prices and good portions. Would have eaten anything on the menu which took me ages to decide as so much choice. Couldn't fault anything and would recommend to anyone visiting or working in the area.

So walked in about 5 minutes before our reservation. Completely ignored for 10 minutes. Once we were finally seated we were cramped between two other families which looked equally as unimpressed as we were. We were given a broken highchair for our 7 month old daughter and had to pester to get a new one! So before we had even... More

We visited here on a Friday evening, we had booked and it was fairly busy. We ordered our food (one starter, two mains and a bottle of wine) and we're surprised our bill only came to £32! Would definitely visit again if in the area- bit too far to travel otherwise! Large portions and tasty, good quality pizza and pasta.... More

A bite to eat before heading to the cinema on Saturday night. We walked in having not made a booking. Looked busy but calm. We both ordered half pizza and half pasta, sharing the Diavola pizza. The pastas were gorgeous as well with pesto and an apollo type. Both enjoyed it, fresh, tasty food, ideal for a relaxed Saturday night.

Food was okay, but nothing special for an Italian restaurant The Pizza was pretty tasteless. Service was by stressed/harassed waitress. food came out in dribs and drabs.
