We organised a private party here and the staff were flexible and attentive. good atmosphere and an unhurried approach to delivering an Italian menu.

We had a fair choice of menu items , lovely antipasti (if you avoided the ferocious chilli-stuffed olives !) and very quaffable house wine.

No complaints from any of our party.

We hadn't booked a table in advance, so had to wait a while, but it was recommended by our host and was worth it. We had a very tasty meal, with good-sized portions, and a good choice of wine. Nice atmosphere, too. Will definitely book ahead next time, and will try the desserts too.

Despite mixed reviews, decided to try Il Piccolo. Good service and wine list. Enjoyed sardine starter and meatballs with spaghetti. Friends' pizzas had good topping, to the edges but were so thin and crispy they were difficult to cut through. Early bird menu was available. Prices were reasonable.

We met some friends who had suggested this restaurant. Three had calves liver,the onion gravy had raw onions in it and instead of being served with mash as it normally is they gave us micorwaved baked potatoes and 1 floret of virtually uncooked brocolli. I am no cook but I would have been ashamed to serve this up. Let's not even mention the starter . find somewhere else to eat. The wine was OK.

This is an ever reliable Italian restaurant with a great wine list! The food is rustic, some dishes are very good and some feel a little tired. However, the pizzas are superb. Service is attentive and reliable and it's a nice place to spend an evening.

Kids are made to feel welcome which is a nice touch.

Just don't have a large lunch before you go so you're ready for the challenge ahead!
