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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It was a lovely night for a surprise party for my friends 50th. Staff did really well with service because the food had been pre ordered! Food was delicious! The only thing that I didn't like was my mojito they didn't put any sugar in...so it very bitter! Told the bar man and he said he would try to improve it. Lovely staff, lovely food and the place is decorated lovely too! I would go back again :)More

Well, we booked this place for my father in law birthday, the food was OK, the staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. We asked if they had any specials, and the reply was, I'm not sure, I'll ask the chef. He came...back 5 minutes later with a list of specials hand written on a scrap piece of paper. We booked as we had seen on the website it was 50% off pizza and pasta all day Sunday. We decided to get the kids a pizza and a side of fries as it worked out cheaper than getting the pizza from the kids menu, however, we were then told the 50% offer was no longer available (then why was it on the website on the day of visiting?). We later came across the same promotion on a leaflet on the table, clearly stating 50% off on Sundays, but again we were told we couldn't have the deal, but we were then offered a free round of drinks at our next visit. However... we were given no vouchers, so we have no way of redeeming them. My mother in law asked this question about being about how to redeem, the bloke then replied 'I work here so just ask for me'. I won't be holding my breath. I'd like to come again, but I think the staff need more training on the service you offer to ensure a smoother process.More

I pass this place most days but only decided to try it yesterday as a birthday treat, i am so disappointed with myself for not going there earlier as i've been missing fantastic food. My wife had the seafood linguine , which was cooked perfectly,...she loves muscles and the prawn were big and meaty and truth to be told more than she could eat. My fillet beef stroganoff was to die for, the beef was tender, the mushrooms and sauce almost making me want to lick the plate, even the rice had just the right amount of soft fluffiness. After i was fit to burst and a little time i was somehow tempted to try the profiteroles and a latte. The coffee was my favourite (Lavazza) and the profiteroles were the best i had ever tasted. My wife being a lightweight could only manage a hot chocolate. After lots of questions to one of the family members who own the restaurant, i was told all the food is freshly made on the premises to the customers request. I was very impressed with every aspect of this place and most definitely will be returning as soon as i am able. The wheelchair access for my wife was excellent, the drinks menu extensive and parking the car was right next to the restaurant. The ambience was lovely and prices very reasonable, all the staff very friendly, especially Lena, so Thank you from Shane and Pinky.More

I'm so glad we finally got to eat at this Italian restaurant. Wow, the food was amazing. The waitress was very polite and the owner came over to check everything was to our liking. We will most definitely be going again.

Perfect birthday meal. The food and service is amazing. Quite expensive. A 10% service charge was also added to the bill. I would always give a tip but it should be up to you how much you give!

The food has been amazing and the staff are very accommodating. The owner has especially made our experience here (the many times we have visited) rather special. There are plenty of choices and the Calzone Calberse is particularly fantastic. My mrs had the seafood linguini...and she thoroughly enjoyed it. I would certainly recommend this place, and I forgot to mention the cocktails are great too.More
