“Mid week celebration”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

This is local to us but as good if not better than other Italians. The staff are fab, menu is great - this occasion I had the tagliatelle and king prawns in a tomato sauce , it was delicious. The rest of our party had carbonara, risotto, diablo pizza, linguine, and chicken pasta which were all great. The free garlic bread is to die for. It cost £100 for six, two starters, six mains, three beers a bottle of red and four lemonades. Cannot fault it in any way , either great for a date night or a celebration with family or friends :-)

“Family get together”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

Don't be put off by the exterior - very welcoming inside with smart but relaxed decor. Staff attentive but not OTT. Food excellent with a wide choice - there were 8 of us and all the meals looked v tasty! We declined desserts as we had starters and were full to busting - we were left to chat in peace and not hassled to pay up an leave as is the case in some places. Will definitely return! Thank you...

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

This is one of our local restaurants and after many visits we still have nothing but praise. Wonderful welcome from friendly staff, lovely ambiance and fantastic food. Donna and her team make you feel so at home with good attentive service. Don't be put off by the exterior of the building or location as once you get inside you will be pleasantly surprised

“Surprise wedding anniversary treat - and what a surprise it was too”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

Pass this restaurant all the time but this was the first visit. Fabulous menu with something for everyone. The food was not disappointing, it was so good I decided to only eat half my main (but brought it home for tomorrow - no way I was gonna leave it) and go for a dessert. Omg it was so hard to choose one they all sounded so delicious. My lemon sorbet with sour cherry compote was amazing.... The owners were very friendly and helpful, it was not too busy (Sunday evening) and they had time to talk to us at at the end of the meal and tell us what they are doing with the restaurant and plans for Christmas etc. Trying to think now when I can fit another calorie filled feast again. Do not miss this little gem. Oh and specials on too which would make midweek dining very good value.

“Excellent local Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Went with two friends on recommendation of others and we were not disappointed. Had passed the restaurant on a number of occasions and not been overly tempted by the outer appearance, but took a chance and were delighted with the interior. There is a comfortable waiting area and the tables are large and well spaced whilst retaining an intimate yet still lively atmosphere.
The menu is sufficiently large and varied to cater for a variety of tastes and we all agreed that we could easily do 3 or 4 visits choosing completely different dishes each time and not be disappointed. Traditional Italian starters, pasta, risotto and pizza dishes as well as meat and fish choices were followed by a good selection of desserts. We all chose a different main course and were all delighted. In addition, we were pleased to find that the restaurant offered a 'deal' on Wed, Thu, Fri and Sun evenings - buy one get one half price on mains, plus a free garlic bread. We chose what we wanted anyway, but the deal offer saved us over £20 on the total bill - bonus!
We were well looked after - attentive but not rushed - and they were happy to let us just sit and chat at the end of the meal without forcing more drinks etc on us.
All in all, an excellent evening which, as it is about half way between us and our friends, we will certainly repeat.
