We visited for quick Sunday evening meal while visiting Exeter. We both had pasta - one with salmon, the other with chicken and courgettes. Both tasted good and the very friendly waiter advised us on the lager on offer which we hadn't had before. You know what to expect in this sort of Italian chain - quick service and pretty... More

Paid for the groupon deal of meal for 2 starters or dessert and a main for £18. Arrived on a Thursday night and was very busy pretty much with everyone else using deals. Nice choice of starters and mains for this deal and when the food came it was hot and nice (nothing to rave about but pleasant) however we... More

Came in for Sunday lunch with family and extended family. The restaurant was reasonably busy but there were a few free tables. It was quite a cold day and it wasn't that warm in the restaurant so we had to keep our coats on, there was also a really cold draught around our legs. The staff were cheerful and friendly... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch before a show at The Northcott Theatre. We were welcomed and shown to a table promptly. Our main courses were well presented and delicious, and we ordered two chocolate fondants for dessert. Unfortunately our order got missed and, after waiting almost 30 minutes, asked if there was a problem. The staff realised that they... More

The food is delicious and reasonably priced too. The only downside is the size of the restaurant -... More

A lovely meal, the chicken lasagne was gorgeous and the limoncello lemon meringue was yummy. My husband is a coeliac and was very well looked after by the waiter Manuel, a lovely Italian lad, in spite of the name. His gluten free pizza was the best he's ever had. This was to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our first date,... More
