Our first visit to this chain - and we won't be rushing back. Not a disaster but not that great for the price. Despite arriving at a time when the place was almost empty, our service was terribly slow - over an hour to get to the main course. A pizza was good - lots of interesting topping - but the lasagne was disappointing - lacked herbs to lift it and it came without the slightest hint of a garnish. (The lack of a green or simple mixed salad on the menu is disappointing). The wine - not cheap - was so-so and the tap water that came with it was vastly over-iced for drinking with wine - symptomatic of an over-egging of the pudding that does not arise from a sympathy with the food and wine. Puddings were good but again over-priced. Other reviews mention the exciting climb to the loos, but that can be forgiven as part of the price of preserving and renewing a pleasant building. All in all I'd rather spend my money at a genuine family run Italian that does the basics well - some bread on the table, a decent side salad, traditional ingredients, good house wine, reasonable prices and a little sweet or choc with the bill.
