My wife and I came here for a Saturday evening meal - at around 7:30 and it was busy, albeit just tailing off. She is gluten free and there's a fair selection for her to choose from - risotto, pasta and pizza all freshly cooked and salad too. The waitress was good to even though she was quite busy. The only downside to the visit was the noise in the room - it seems to resonate around the restaurant which made conversation difficult as you had to raise your voice.

Came here with my boyfriend recently for a date night. Absolutely love the pizza's here, especially the leggera padana pizza as it's a nice, guilt free treat when on a diet! The night we visited was very busy so service was quite slow but overall we enjoyed our meals and got 25% off with a voucher we had.

As with all trip advisor reviews you can only speak as you find. Service was absolutely excellent and timely, our waitress even brought the cake and stayed to sing happy birthday with us........the staff also remembered our Grandsons name which was a nice personal touch. Food was usual Italian fare but hot and tasty and the Children's menu was excellent.
One criticism.......just don't look up, it is one of those modern buildings which has all pipework, ducting etc exposed and could do with a really good clean.

I received an offer by email and decided to book a table and treat ourselves. When we arrived we were ushered to the table closest to the toilet so we decided to move along a little as the restaurant was quiet anyway. The lady took our drinks order and asked if we were ready to order food after about 2 minutes of sitting down. (drinks yes but food no) The starters arrived however there was no cutlery. My wife tried to call the waiter back, however they didn't hear so she tried to catch someones attention. The response she received was 'wait a minute' before he looked away. Several minutes later and a very annoyed wife we tried to catch someones attention and the same 'wait a minute' waiter walked over and said 'whats up?' We told him the cutlery situation but he wasn't at all bothered. This pretty much killed off the meal and we were quite looking forward to leaving.

Overall the service felt rushed, non attentive and rather quite surly and has put us off returning back in a hurry until it is addressed.

Very disappointing as its usually a safe bet.

Generally the food is good, however on my visit to the Teesside branch I ordered a Zapparoli. Despite being advertised as a new take on the traditional pizza, the taste was appalling. On passing this feedback to the waiter I was laughed at and told "what can we do about it". Dreadful service!!!!! Overall a really bad experience despite the talented chefs which work there.
