We ate twice at this restaurant during our stay in a nearby hotel. The service was very good. The typically italian menu was very good. I had a great pizza one evening and a tasty steak on the other. My husband enjoyed two different pasta dishes. The wines were good but felt the desserts let the menu down and were... More

Everyone was friendly and there were obviously many repeat diners. Vegetarian options were limited, as with many Italian restaurants, specially in Europe but the pizza was good - as were the desserts. Would happily return but was... More

This is a very popular Italian restaurant. The food was very good especially the crepes which were cooked at the table and were delicious. The service was quick and efficient but we didn't find them that friendly maybe because they were so busy.

We visited this wonderful restaurant twice for evening meals during our 1 week stay. The food was freshly cooked to a high standard and the staff were friendly, making us feel very welcome. If you enjoy Italian food, you will not be disappointed.

Overall poor experience of the week.A medium steak oozed blood through the white cream mushroom sauce and the steak was very fatty for a sirloin.Veal Marsala was a sticky over cooked dry sauce which i ended up scraping off the meat.The saying is when in Rome- have a Pizza- the Pizzas looked good.!!!!!! The atmosphere and ambience is excellent -... More

Food good, ambiance awful and service to match - we felt we were an inconvenience as a table of 4 was given to us and we were only 3 so when others arrived wanting a 4 waiters looked daggers at us!

It might seem wierd what I am about to write, but I never go to this restaurant for the italian cuisine, I always have the same course, and my choice is the Pepper sauce steak, a prime cut... More
