“They do what they do really well”
Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

I went here on my birthday and although I thought the outside could do with some work, inside was a whole different story. It's a pizza and pasta place and they do this really well! The food was lovely and the waitress could not have been more obliging. She warned us there would be a delay and offered us some starters during this time. I wasn't happy with my glass of wine and she exchanged it for something more to my taste without hesitation. She was very attentive and considering how busy it was her and another waitress did a grand job. I watched as every customer that walked in was told about the delay. She gave them the choice of staying of leaving... To be honest what more can you do?! I had a lovely time here. Spruce up the outside and it will be perfect.

“Frozen Pizza”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

The "restaurant" has a really tacky deco, a perfect tourist trap, with sea view and the the checked red & white table cloth however the "service" is provide by eastern Europeans talking among themselves on their on language - not even Italian. Sarcasm and boredom is on their ton of voice when taking the order or bringing you the food. All could be forgiven if the food was good but unfortunately the pizzas are frozen probably from Lido just few minutes away. Don't wast you time! Much better choice is the pub/bar in The Lugger Hotel just a block down on the same road.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 via mobile

Looked nice from the outside, but seemingly they seated everyone in the windows to make it look busy!

Service was ok from one waitress, but have never been anywhere that took so long for an average meal to arrive!!

“Don't bother”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 via mobile

Should have walked when I saw the threadbare table clothes didn't get better!
Diet Coke was not and I asked for this!
It was sad!
