4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Resembles a school canteen in Italy but food & service is good. Excellent menu choice and clearly good ingredients used. My younger son who is 17 particularly likes this place and the free Limoncello after the meal!! Best to book, is popular especially at peak times. You can sit outside by the canal, densley populated area so again best book

Had a meal here last Friday. Very friendly staff and good food. I had the chicken Leonardo, amazing amount of chicken, all well presented. My wife had the beef Lasagne, and although she left some it was no reflection of the food, it purely her Appetite.

Went there yesterday for a family lunch, 5 adults and 4 kids. We were very well accommodated as we needed a large space. Food was very tasty as usual and the service was great even though the place was busy. Great location, good food and reasonably priced.

The pesto was the sort you get in a jar at the supermarket for £1. The chopped tomato on top was all that was fresh. My friend has a calzone pizza which she found totally unappetising.... More

Just returned from a lunch time meal on a Saturday. Place was empty when we arrived and only two other tables occupied while we were there. We have been here many times and always enjoyed the meal and service. However, this time to start with there were no Olives and Feta Cheese to start. We opted instead for the Bread... More

After being told that this location was excellent we decided to give it a bash for our Anniversary. We decided that it would be a good idea to book in advance and it was a good job that we did. The place was buzzing when we got there and the atmosphere was very good. The food was tasty and well... More

I have to say I have been to a lot of Italians over the years but in my opinion this has got to be one of the best I have had. Great service. Great food and very reasonable in price

Stopped for a quick bite to eat on a business stay over. Pleasant service and best Carbonara I've had the pleasure of eating.
