Really nice fresh food, I was impressed by the calamari starter size. Very good value for money and easily shareable size portions. Pizzas were all cooked fresh and the restaurant looks great. Great service and nice staff.

Enjoyed coffee and hot chocolate and cake here for morning tea, very warming on a cold day. Will come back.

Food was great, staff friendly, great value for money. Had not visited for a while, but just as good as the last time.

The prices are good, as are the portion sizes, but I didn't like the taste of the pasta or the pizzas. Each time, I ate less than half of my dinner. The food isn't anywhere near as good as restaurants such as Prezzo, Zizzi, etc.

Always best to book. I have been when it's really busy and tables are at a premium. Take your chance by not booking. I used MC to pay.
