On recommendation we went with a couple of friends. We had a table near the door which was a mistake on a chilly evening. The service was very good and the waiter exceptional. The menu was typically Italian but a tad expensive our starters were nice, I shared my garlic bread with my chum and it was good, however the... More

Delightful staff. Excellent service. One of our party changed her main course when it was presented to her as she realised it contained something that did not agree with her. Not a problem Alternative provided and no charge for the original choice.

Nothing special, food bland, pasta dish was very hot, as though it had been microwaved. As someone has previously said don't understand all the 5* reviews, there are far better places to eat out

My wife and I went here to celebrate her birthday and were delighted with this restaurant. The food was exceptionally tasty and freshly cooked. I can recommend the risotto gamberi particularly. Good service from attentive staff and a great ambience. Will be returning soon with friends.

Have been here twice for dinner, both times the food was faultless. Attentive service, reasonably priced and always a good atmosphere. Will definitely come here again for dinner. Recommend the mussels to start!

Evening out with a friend. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and the food is great. Drinks very pricey but their risotto is lovely (as are other dishes so I'm told). Also a nice place to sit outside on a summers evening. Would recommend to anyone who likes Italian food.

We took my daughter and boyfriend out for dinner at short notice. Fabulous atmosphere and lovely food always enhanced for us because of some picky family members who like to adapt dishes which is always perfectly accommodated - everything is prepared freshly.

We visited with friends on a Saturday evening. The restaurant was buzzing. Service was friendly and attentive without being overbearing, and the food was good. Will visit again.

We do eat out at least once a week if we can. We have been here a few times now, as we live very close. Out of all the places we've been to, this is my favourite place to eat. The food is always very tasty, the staff are welcoming and friendly and service is 1st class and prices are... More
