Visited last week for a lovely family meal. The atmosphere was great with friendly staff and great service. We had a mix of specials and fixed menu and it was fantastic. But beware this is the third time I have been with a large party and been over charged. Check your bill before you pay.

I hadn't been here for several years but went recently and everything is still the same, in a good way I mean. The food is good Italian, nothing crazy, nothing too outrageous....just good Italian. Staff are always nice and the bill is always less than you think.

Friendly service on arrival and quickly served drinks whilst waiting for table. Had already eaten here before so expected food to be good and it was. Had pasta...good portion size and tasted lovely. Good service throughout the meal. Will be visiting again in the future.

Wasn't expecting it to be so busy on a Tuesday. I arrived just after 7 and was suggested I go to the bar and have a drink while they sort a table for me. The early bird three course special is available all day Tuesday and it really does pull in the people. I had Bruschetta, Franco's Penne Pasta (which... More
