My partner brought me here as he said it's the best Italian in town. Couldn't say I agree with him. The staff where friendly and welcoming but the place was freezing and dead. The food was bland and unimaginative - maybe I just chose wrong. Wouldn't go back though.

Back to this traditional Italian restaurant after many years, and thankfully it's not changed one bit. Good, honest, authentic, Italian food at its best. Very lively atmosphere, and conveniently located for the town centre and the cinema, only a few steps away. I'd recommend the fillet steak Casanova, with Marsala sauce and pate, but any of the steaks will be... More

What is going on with this once very reliable... More

My first visit here ,but a lot of people had recommended so thought we would give it a try. Food isn't bad but it is only average. The place is cramped and noisy and service was slow. Half way through eating our main course the lights went off where we were sat. Guess the staff didn't even notice as it... More

We have now visited this restaurant 3 times on visits to family in the area and have never been disappointed. The staff, food and atmosphere are always great and it certainly beats other "family friendly" eateries in the area. can't wait for our next trip to Boston.

I really don't understand why people rave about this place. I've been a couple of times recently, once with my boyfriend and once with a large group of friends and both times the service was poor and slow and the food was below average. The restaurant is cramped and uncomfortable. Birth times it took ages for anyone to come and... More

Can't fault the food here, lots of choices and it's all good quality. Had 13 in our party having different choices and all left empty plates which is a good sign all the various dishes were of equal good quality. The steak was a good size and cooked perfectly although some of the steaks are quite pricey compared to other... More
