Had a family meal here, 10 of us. They coped well with a big table as we all got our food together. The food was excellent and was matched by the service. Incredibly friends and efficient. Will be back there next time I want some great Italian food!

Had a superb Christmas meal with colleagues a couple of weeks ago. Authentic and tasty and great service. Much better quality of service and food than you'd expect from the size of the place. Would definitely recommend and will come again
