We have enjoyed the food but the personnel was not the most friendly and welcoming. The manager (could be the ass-manager) was rude. I will not go back.

Great atmosphere to accompany some seriously good Italian food. The toasted bread for dipping in their own olive oil, parmesan & garlic is complimentary and a great appetiser. The menu is extensive and all food is well presented and very tasty. Great staff.

First time eating here. Service was friendly and accommodating. Sauce was very good, which is usually what we worry about at Italian restaurants. Slightly overpriced for this type of restaurant.

I would say yes if you go early. It is not primarily a 'family' restaurant but I believe that they will welcome a well behaved child.
