“Don't waste your time!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

7.20pm on a Saturday night, myself and 2 friends decide to go out for dinner and pop into this Italian. Only 3 tables seated, most on desserts. 5 very bored looking foh staff, looking gormlessly at us as we enter.

Please may I have a table for 3? I ask.

The response.... No!!

No offer of a drink to wait for a table or even a suggestion of a later time. Just no. It was rude, unwelcoming and all together off putting. The staff seemed desperate for something to do.... But the host was awful and for a first time visit all together awful.... What if I had been a mystery diner!? They would have failed.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Went last night, had a great meal. Split a Sardinian garlic bread between us, and it was just right as a starter for 2 (and yummy!). My BF had sea bass, and I had pasta, really well-cooked, simple food. Nice atmosphere, with friendly staff.

“EXCELLENT VALUE”
Reviewed 2 March 2012

We has an excellent evening in a typically vibrant Italian restaurant. The food and wine was excellent and not overpriced, the service and staff were very friendly and the only real complaint I would have is that towards the end of the night they were in a rush to get us out, so much so that by the time I had had desert and coffee everything had shut down.
