Waited a long time for drinks to arrive. One Starter arrived and waited a very long time for my Starter. Very slow and disappointed with my meal. The Staff were friendly and the Restaurant was clean.

We went here for dinner, meals where a great size and we got a seat straight away. We found it a nice place to go out as a family.

I could live with the poor service - slow to take the order, no cutlery, napkins or water - but to serve a vegetarian pasta which contained a considerable amount of meat is pretty unforgivable. We didn't pay for it and won't be back.

Good service, nice food, quiet atmosphere, kids menu. Good for a lunch away from the "Westfield Food Hall". Seated quickly in child friendly (ie keep them contained) booth seating. Food quick and tasty.

We visited here with friends for an early evening dinner. Having read the reviews re portion size, I queried with a member of staff if an entree size seafood pasta would be sufficient. She felt it would not. However, the size of the main course...More

Beware the size of the bruschetta - we ordered 2 as a starter not realising that they are 'pizza' sized. 1 would have done between the 2 of us but they were well cooked and tasty. We had also ordered substantial mains but could not...More
