Environment friendly, great service and staff, positive atmosphere and amazing food. It's one of the places I often go to to enjoy good food and have a good time. Feels so welcoming :) Price friendly for quality as well

Service was terrible, the staff were rude and stingy and are not even Italian. The pizza was too salty and the pasta wasn't enjoyable.

Food was delicious and well presented. I would recommend the pizza to be shared between two people (one adult & one child). The deserts are a great way to finish the night! Delicious and creamy. I would highly recommend the tirramasu, creamy and fruity and also not to strong with the flavour of coffee. I would definitely recommend this place... More

Sign outside - ANY pizza ANY pasta £5.95 before 4pm - tried to charge me full price for my pasta - said it was my fault for not asking for special menu!? Any pasta £5.95 is pretty clear to me ...they did honour the lower price but went on at me that I should have stated - special menu!!

I went here for dinner with friends and we all loved the food. I had some leftovers which I asked to take home but they accidentally chucked them out. Luckily the friendly staff made me a fresh batch to take away with me :) we will definitely be back!

My pasta with crab and scallops arrived with a wide strip of raw carrot as a garnish(?) but otherwise looked OK. There were asparagus spears which were fine and the pasta was suitably 'al dente'. There was a sauce that might have contained crabmeat, but although it was not over-seasoned it had such a great deal of garlic in it.... More

Prompt and attentive, but not intrusive service. Comfortable chairs . Choice of meat, fish and pasta dishes- not exhaustive but with great sauces and sides and fresh vegetables. Nice cocktails

Very nice restaurant with a nice atmosphere, very good service and an excellent Pizza (thin with a soft border). Very good the Tomato sauce and so even the menu. I've tried the tagliolini with lobsters and tomato and they were really good! Kids enjoyed to look at the Lobsters in the tank.
