Food here was plentiful, waiters are Italian, but its cramped and a little too cosy. Nothing to complain about specifically, but not doing it for me.. A lot of competition in Cardiff, and photos of celebs on the wall don't impress anymore.

Good food, singing waiters and a great atmosphere. Book early or you won't get in. Eaten here many times and the quality of the freshly cooked food is excellent. Very central near The Hayes.

Cosy inside, walls covered with pic of the owner with all the celebs that have eaten there. However, the prices are very reasonable and the food is mostly very good. Great atmosphere, though not for the claustrophobic!
