The food was beautiful, the service was fantastic. A very enjoyable night. Great selection of wines too. We will be returning here again during our stay.

Was there 12th July for dinner.....fab food and great to have so much vegetarian variety, cooked to perfection and presented well. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was wonderful. It is a big place and was full, a true reflection that we need more good vegetarian restaurants. It's so tasty even a die hard meat eater would love it!! The Jazz bar was equally as ambient and the band were top class.

Rare indeed to find an Italian vegetarian restaurant especially one with an extensive menu. As the meat eater I was wholly satisfied on all levels by my choices as was my veggie wife. The fact that we could eat al fresco with our Jack Russell was an added bonus as it was too hot to contemplate leaving her in the car.

We ate here after reading and hearing so many positive reviews and we had a fantastic night!! We knew the menu was vegetarian but were happy to experiment! We both chose pizza and both were delicious. We shared a pudding (tiramisu) - also very nice! While we ate we listened to a wonderful jazz quartet - what a treat!! A thoroughly good night out - an experience rather than just a meal out! Anyone who misses out on this place because "it's vegetarian" are very short-sighted and should give it a go ......... You will be pleasantly surprised!

We have visited this restaurant twice before, but this was the first time we had dinner. Have visited at various points of the year - spring, summer and autumn. Menu needs to change a little and reflect seasonality to get the best out of fresh ingredients available in the area. Starter was the best part of the meal - can heartily recommend the sweet potato wedges and bruschetta. Also the mezze platter - though did not get the rosemary potatoes as per the menu. Could also have used a little more flat bread. Bought pizza for one of the mains - not the best for an Italian specialist restaurant. Quite basic. The other main - lentil ragu was fine. Though a little bland. Vegetarian food only lacks meat, not taste. Sticky toffee pudding was nice - would have been better in a bowl with custard rather than ice cream. From our second visit would heartily recommend the walnut and stilton lasagne. Would return if in the area.
