This was our second visit to this restaurant. We wasn't disapointed! We arrived on sunday evening as a walk in. The staff were welcoming and the food was fab. We will definately visit again when we next visit Liverpool.

Visited with friends, great ‘buzz’ and good service but most of all consistently good food. Excellent tournedos Rossini and sea bass. Food is hot and served with vegetables and potatoes, unlike some place that rack up extra charges for these items. Love the ‘retro’ desserts...trolley that has delicious home made puds. Would highly recommend.More

Booked a meal for 4 people (inc two children) and it was a brilliant experience. The food was delicious, the service was quick and décor, made us feel like we were in Italy. We were seated upstairs, over looking the restaurant. and it made the...experience even better, especially for the kids. (I would advise booking in advance, as it was fully booked up)More

This is the first time EVER I have not left a tip after a meal. Firstly, I want the food here is outstanding and some of the best I’ve tasted in a long time. It simply cannot be faulted ….. But ….. The service is,...at best, very poor. We were greeted and then shown to area where there were 3 tables and the guy just said ‘there’ pointing to a table 10 feet away. I was already willing to leave and that point as I’m Not used to being greeted like this. We then waited 10 minutes to be asked if we wanted a drink and then another 10 minutes to get it. I then had to ask 3 separate members of staff for another drink. We were never offered a wine list or offered any water. We ordered starters - and they forgot one of them. The food came very quickly with little or no gap between the starter and the main. I just felt like the front of house wanted you in - out and gone as quickly as possible and I’m afraid that shows in the service they offer. There is simply no atmosphere. This could be such a great place if the front of house replicated the standards set by the kitchen. Sadly I can’t recommend as for us the whole experience was poor.More
