Visited here with friends for a quite meal, it was the first time that we had been. We didn’t enjoy the food at all or the fact the owner kept coming up to our table whilst we were talking. Very pricey for what we had.

Hi, thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear you feel this way. As we have only been open for 10 weeks the owner has been going around customer tables asking how their meals are and asking opinions on their dining experience as it is important for him to listen to his customers - in this instance I am sorry you felt this was intrusive of your quiet meal with friends. If the owner himself hadn't asked if you were enjoying your meal it is a requirement that a member of our staff also ask, at the very least on the main course, if everything is ok with your meal. It is at this point we would have preferred if you had said it was not to let us give you the option of changing your dish. Again, it is a shame you feel we are 'pricey'. We feel the cost of our dishes reflect the freshness of our food and the time taken to make it e,g. a chef being in at 7am to get the wood fire up to temperature and make the dough for our bread and pizza dough which is all made in house every single morning. But if you could somehow let us know what you had we will certainly take on board your comments. Thank you.

Was so good I'm going back next week, the freshly homemade pizzas and calimari are delicious. Nice wines, lovely authentic Italian food in a relaxed friendly atmosphere with attentive staff... what more could you want?
