Visited on a Wednesday night for a quick bite to eat before visiting the cinema. Seated quickly but only 2 other parties and a few couples. Waited about 5-10 minutes for drinks orders, then we were told the waiter would be back to take food orders in "just a minute". While waiting a further 20 minutes, the chef was working... More

Where to start ... total experience took an agonising amount of time we left promptly after eating half our bad meals the meals themselves took just over an hour to get to the table my girlfriends carbonara tasted of nothing bland as anything only slight flavour you could identify was grease lasagne was overall disappointing Aswel everything just tastes frozen...

Wow! well we clearly didn't live up to your expectations. Sad we weren't made aware of your disappointment though - maybe we could have remedied it? Certainly our food is fresh, it's delicate and not overseasoned with sugars, dried herbs and salt although quite unlike packaged food as some may prefer. More

We decided to support the independent Italian diner rather than the well known pizza chain across the road for take out pizza and coffee. The pizza was clearly not homemade but was decent enough however we found a thick black hair when we were 2 slices in. Yuck! The coffee was not proper Italian barista coffee but weak flavoured hot...

We are really quite puzzled by your review... Our chefs are all Italian and our Pizza Chef is bald... Our dough is freshly made on the premises, every morning... Our Pizzas are freshly rolled out and topped to the customers order... (certainly not frozen!) Our coffee is Italian Illy - made by Barista trained staff... and we're especially puzzled because...

Lovely food great service. Visited here on a weekend away with my daughter. Thoroughly enjoyed our starters of King prawns accommnied by cheesey garlic bread. Followed by tasty lasagne and seafood pasta. Too full for desserts but they looked good.

Dad and brother had stomach cramps and spent the evening on the toilet - ruined the night of bowling after the meal. Margarita and meat pizza were greasy and tasteless. £7.50 for 4, yes FOUR, small prawns for a starter!!! Waiter stated "There isnt enough mussels for 2 starters, could we add clams?". When the mussles arrived for my mum... More

We visited "just for a coffee"! Were greeted by very pleasant waitress who assured us coffee only wasn't a problem. And what lovely coffees they were. Beautifully served accompanied by two amaretto biscuits. By this time we had glanced through the menu & decided to have dessert! Certainly not to be missed - best chocolate fudge cake I have eaten.... More

I don't have anything bad to say about this place! The service and staff are great the food amazing! The garlic king prawns in chilli are Devine!

Family run restaurant serving Italian food in addition to Burgers, Steaks, Fish etc. Our restaurant has been on Ocean Plaza for over twelve years, and we pride ourselves on being able to compete with the 'big boys' on this Branded-Commercial Leisure Site. Obviously sometimes this can bring it's issues - such as customers expecting fast food - we can never compete with the brands on speed as our food is not pre-packaged and frozen! Ocean Plaza offers free parking for customers and is home to an impressive multi-screen Vue Cinema, a 20 Lane Bowling Alley with Laser experience, a DW state of the art Fitness Club and a 95 bedroom Premier Travel Inn - which faces our restaurant.
