The other reviews are so true. I wish that I'd had time to check them out here before we passed the Restaurant and thought that it was worth a visit - how can it look so inviting but be so dreadful! It's only saving grace...More

Food tasted like a frozen meal. Food kept being brought through the restaurant from the freezer! £3.70 for half of lager. Food tasteless. Large rubbish bins full to the brim being brought through while we were eating...to be emptied outside. Disappointing!!!

The food was good, freshly cooked and well flavoured. Staff were friendly but a bit vague about the menu and wine list.

This restaurant could have it all.....it's a great little location with features which could be worked on. Unfortunately it's not. The menu is far too big, pizzas get burnt so the door stays open to get rid of the smell, it's decor is so in...More

This place looked appealing from the outside,genuine Italian, among a plethora of fish and chip shops. Managed to get a stage side seat to witness a management style not seen since the days of feudalism. Yes, everything that has been written about this man is...More
