We've eaten here a few times, it's always pretty good. The food in most Italian restaurants is quite similar, it's rarely bad and it's rarely fantastic. We'd go back, but we'd take it for what it is, a typical Italian!

First visit to this restaurant and we were not disappointed. Starters were huge and really tasty. Mains were excellent portion sizes too and very flavoursome. Staff were friendly and happy to help. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Would definately return.

This is the first time I have been in this resteraunt under its new ownership. The starter was nice, but a small portion. The pizza was absolutely tasteless and the base was soggy. The sweet course was okay, but nothing exiting. The decor has changed...More
