The restaurant was established in 1995 when Marco Senior and his son Paolo decided to create an authentic, family run family feel restaurant. The restaurant has built up a reputation as the perfect place for that intimate meal, or social and family occasion in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere situated in the heart of Oldham. This has now been developed further by moving its premises to Greaves st where it now not only boasts THE White Rooms funtion suit but also a custom built music venue in its basement called Letsby Avenue...From srength to strength we grow trying our best to merge a traditional family bistro with a multy facilitated building. we hope you visit and give us your opinion soon...paolo
