We called without a reservation for an early dinner. The restaurant is up two flights of stairs, not sure if there is a lift. The reception was very warm and friendly without being ott. The menu is not extensive but has all the important meal types. We ate dishes from the specials board, which were both excellent and beautifully prepared.... More

Staff were super nice, everyone enjoyed their food, my pizza was spot on. Also loving the free garlic bread with the wine. Portions are huge which is great. Also nice interior.

Initially was wary as they would not take a booking and there was seven of us, and when we arrived we joined the queue we questioned whether this was worth it, and thank goodness we did wait (and it wasn't too long), what a fabulous atmosphere with great food and value for money. I had the best Brushetta I have... More

Service was excellent. It is a busy restaurant, tables quite close together. Menu was large with a great selection of specials. Starters came out quickly as did the mains. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Called in with the family and our friends, a total of 4 adults and 3 children. The entrance and staircase looks and smells like a gents toilet, not very well maintained. The restaurant is a little better but I found the noise travelled really poorly and our conversation was drowned out by other diners sitting some distance away. The food... More

Fell upon it by chance and we were delighted. Very friendly, lovely food and great atmosphere. The entrance stairs are not very inspiring, but it is worth persevering. Delicious mussels as a starter and gluten free pasta to follow.

Fantastic lunchtime special menu - fantastic customer service. The staff were warm and friendly, the food was delicious -speedy service and great value. You could easily miss this little gem despite being in the thick of it as it's up some stairs - but so glad I didn't.

Thank you so much for squeezing in 13 teenagers at a moments notice after another restaurant had closed for refurbishment and not even notified us. My daughter had a wonderful birthday and she said it turned out so much better. The food was delicious and very reasonable. I am very grateful. Thanks for saving the day x

Found this restaurant on a street with a few well known chain restaurants, and was glad we decided to go there. It was a nice small restaurant with a friendly atmosphere, and it was obviously very popular as there was a huge queue out the door the whole time we were there (I'd recommend going early as although we tried...
