Watery vegetable soup was disappointing. Baked potato with chicken and pesto was completely overpowered by the pesto mix. Cappuccino coffee reminded me of the coffee's served in Italian cafés in the 1970/80's - must try harder.

Had a scooter stolen when having lunch here. Was tucked right next to table whilst taking children to toilet. Gone when returned from toilet.
Lasagne was greasy, as was pizza. Panini flavorless. Staff unfriendly.
Won't be visiting again.

Great Pizzas, jacket potato with filling great value, mouthwatering cheesecakes, and great coffee and tea, all served by friendly staff. What's not to like?

Often have breakfast here and always enjoy the food and service. Sometimes treat myself to one of their florentines. Delicious! Occasionally I get above myself and try somewnere different like Maison Blanc or Valerie Patisserie. Always a mistake -the chains just don't have that personal touch.

A great little authentic Italian. Why is it empty on a Saturday night? What is wrong with you people? Go and try it, it is fab. It's not a chain, all the food is fresh and cooked to order, the service was fab. All that was missing were a few extra customers to add a bit of atmosphere.
