Stopped off for dinner after a long day at Longleat.
Warmly welcomed into a pleasant albeit empty restaurant and well looked after all evening.
The antipasti was great and all four mains were excellent quality and served promptly.
A lovely end to a great day

We popped in at 9pm on a Saturday night in the hope they might still be serving food and were warmly greeted and shown to a table. The service was quickly, really friendly and the pizza was absolutely delicious. They aren't shy with the cheese! There was a range of food to choose from and the restaurant is small and cosy. I will definitely go back.

This had become one of our favourite local restaurants and we persuaded friends to come along for an evening meal with us to try it out.

It was a Tuesday and the restaurant was nearly empty. Having had problems with the availability of scallops on other occasions we asked specifically if they were available and were assured by the friendly waitress that indeed they were, so two of our party of five ordered them. We waited almost 45 minutes before the chef appeared, looking very harrassed, to say that scallops were in fact not available. There was no explanation as to why - had there been a catastrophe in the kitchen for example? Just apologies - no scallops. We were at a loss to understand the time it took to let us know this, surely five minutes would have been enough time to check whether they had the necessary items?

Sadly the food, when it arrived, was also not up to the standard we had previously experienced here. Our friend had the seafood pasta dish, which had very little sea food in it or any sauce to give it flavour and he was very unimpressed. We were offered a free dessert in compensation but only two people took up this offer and the shine had been taken off the evening.

I'm sad to say this and maybe it was just a blip but the restaurant was not busy and there was really no need for any of this to have happened in my opinion. We were embarrassed to have suggested it to our friends.

If we visit again it will be at lunchtime which is much better value for money.

Beautiful Italian food. All the dishes are fresh cooked to authentic Italian recipes. I know this restaurant takes us an hour plus to get to but it is well worth the visit. What more can I say. Very welcoming staff, very attentive.

My voting buttons for service, food and value do not work but they would get 10 if I could vote that high.
