Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food. Great service. Second time we have been and we will be back soon. Owner is a great character. Not the fastest service, but it was rammed.

Restaurant was empty so nice & quiet. Service was good especially as we were the only ones there. Food was pretty average if I’m being 100% honest. Lasagne was dry pasta sheets, not a lot of meat sauce & a big slab of cheese, most...of it got left. Focaccia wasn’t actually focaccia either, just a dry pizza bread. The biggest surprise was the pricing - I live in Glasgow & was baffled to see that they’re even expensive even compared to city pricings.More

Great food, great value and very friendly service, especially from the owner (I guess) who is a charming character. However, as stated below, don't expect a quick in an out. Arrived 7.30pm. Starter 7.50pm. Main course 9.10pm. They did apologise profusely and offered us a...drink on the house, which was nice, but it was rather a long wait between courses.More

First of all the food was delicious. However! We got there for 7pm, had our started at 7.30 then it was 8.50 before our mains arrived then nobody bothered to offer us a dessert menu and we sat there for another while before someone brought...the bill. Again we waited for a while before I ended up just going to the bar to pay the bill. Overall it took 3 hours to get a starter and main which was very disappointing given the cost of the meal. We had to ask twice about when our mains would arrive, and the first woman said she would check then vanished. Overall not a great experience and not sure if the food was good enough overall to counteract the slow and lacklustre service. Which is a shame as it was recommended by friends who go often.More

Amazing friendly service and food. Lobster ravioli might be the best thing I've ever eaten. For a Saturday night I never felt rushed. Fully positive night out, will definitely be returning ASAP.

Tried this as looking for an alternative to our regular Italian ( Broxburn). Overall very good, friendly service, little patchy at times. We waited ages for our mains, starters were instant, so felt like a very long gap. Mixed bruschetta was lovely. Broxburn probably still...has the edge for us, only justMore

We had a lovely family meal last night and would definitely recommend. The spaghetti carbonara was probably the best I’ve had and I love that they do a half portion as a starter. Between us all we had fillet steak (which was beautiful,cooked to perfection)...spaghetti bolognaise and pizza and we all thoroughly enjoyed them all. Lovely local restaurant with very big portionsMore

On a Wednesday night this was surprisingly busy. Both the waitress and the owner (?) were wonderful, we like it when it feels like a locally owned/family business - and this did - both were so friendly. Food - we both had pizza (nduja) /...calzone (traditional) - my husband can be critical of pizzas but there was nothing but praise at this place. We will be back to try their extensive menu;More

Not sure about this. Think it is popular Sunday. I have always booked just to make sure you get a table. Only a phone call to ensure you get in.
