We were a party of eleven and Not impressed, However the food was excellent , the service was good to begin with, then after the main course everything went down hill, the service after the main course stopped, most of the waiting staff disappeared or were in hiding.

Great for food, Good prices, Excellent staff go out there way to ensure everything is up to standards and even go out there way to talk and chat, Sometimes the service makes the experience, They certainly nail it from a 9/10 to a 10/10. Great Italian restaurant, Highly recommend.

Definitely my last time at this restaurant. Everything here is expensive and so you expect the service and food quality to reflect that. It doesn't and it is a desperately disappointing dining experience. It almost feels as if you are in the way! Staff are abrupt and rude and the owner seems to go along with this. The food is...

Arrived and they had no record of online booking we did day before via their website. Took ages to order drinks and then very slow to take food order. Had to ask in the end if they did dessert as left so long. Food lovely and fast to arrive once ordered. Lack of service would put me off coming again.
