My husband and I dont go to Italians often because we feel we can make the same food at home however the meal was lovely, tasty and resonably priced. The young girls who appeared to be running the restaurant did a really good job and were efficient and friendly.

I love the concept of the dog friendly floor, and the staff really went out of the way to make the visit comfortable for our two spaniels, even checking that we were aware there was another dog downstairs before showing us down to our table. The dogs settled down on their own bed, got comfortable and went to sleep.

The service was really friendly and they gave us free garlic bread because the starter was slightly delayed. The menu is limited - nice starters but only pasta for mains, and the food was average - sauces a bit thin though flavours were OK.

10 day holiday and 3 meals here must say something. Food was always piping hot and service quick and very friendly. Portions were just a nice size and although the menu is small there was enough to make decisions hard. Even when busy i watched staff work hard to accommodate families with small children by heating baby food for them. I can recommend the profiteroles.

Warm beer and food. Small portions. No child menu. Wouldn't go again. Just didn't have any atmosphere.

We were a bit put off visiting this restuarant after reading the poor review on service. NOTHING could be farther from the truth we found.
We dined early, getting 2 courses for £10, and although the wine is a little over-priced at about £23, the overall night was good.
Service was excellent, attentive and friendly.
Only 4 stars because the portions were a little small, but perhaps that's because we had the cheapie menu.
Anyway - will go again and would recommend strongly.
Well situated just opposite the main bus stop.
