Oh dear, this really was shameful. It was Valentine's night - a night for the restaurant to really showcase itself...but not an Italian dish in site on the special Valentine's menu (this is an Italian restaurant isn't it?), nasty plastic salt & pepper pots and a cheap and nasty doily was the table decoration - oh, there were flowers, no cooking smells coming from the kitchen and 3 cold starters to choose from - all of which were abysmal and if you had the chunks of dry, hard nectarine and melon with a postage stamp piece of parma ham speared with cocktail sticks you'll know what I'm talking about! The main course was equally dismal - my partner had a cold main course which consisted of 3 large chunks of gorgonzola, 2 small pieces of french stick (least that's what it looked like) and a toffee pear cut in to chunks! Mine, oh superb two tiny tasteless pieces of veal, drizzled with a disgusting sauce and 5 Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes (ahh this was supposed to be the Italian dish) and they were not rescued by desert. At £25 per head, this was not value for money - and quite frankly felt ripped off! The service was random, the Manager/Owner didn't listen and kept forgetting our order! He is clearly so desperate to please and get it right, but sadly you couldn't have got it more wrong if you tried. Plan, prepare, organise and please find yourself a good chef or maybe you should seriously consider contacting Gordon Ramsey to come and help, guide and advise. Ordinarily we would have spoken with the Manager about this, we decided not to on this occasion simply because it was all so dreadful and we just couldn't wait to get out of there. We shall of course vote with our feet and will most definitely not be returning!

This my 4th visit, this time with my one of my girlfriendsfor pre cinema meal. Ordered deep fried squid to start which was made into a seafood platter for 2 at no extra charge. The pasta is superb at prices affordable. The owner is always attentive and can't do enough for you. Didn't have time for a pud but next time??

The first thing we noticed when we sat at our table were the Christmas napkins under the condiments and instead of the usual breadsticks there was a random collection of cheese crackers which didn't look overly appertising! We then had a look at the menu... Being an Italian restaurant several members of our party were looking forward to having an authentic pizza however there were none on the menu. Nor was there garlic bread, bruschetta or any kind of salad! I tried to order the mozzerella starter but was told they had none. I decided on breads and dips instead which was a mistake as when it arrived consisted of a bit of hummous, some garlic butter, olive oil and chopped up tomato all accompanied by slices of French stick! I'm not sure if our waitress was new but she was very unsure of the menu to the point of not knowing what lasagne was! She cleared away glasses that still had drinks in them and reached over several of us still eating our starters to clear empty plates - not good.

Overall it was a disappointing visit and unfortunately we wouldn't consider eating there again

Since the restaurant relaunch, we've been a couple of times. The standard pasta menu is very good. Just before Christmas, we both ordered off the specials menu and the food was top notch. Friendly service made for a great evening. We'll be back. We were there on a quiet night, so we're looking forward to going back when it's a bit more lively

How lovely to find somewhere with good food helpful staff and that does not keep trying to push more drinks on you or rush you through. Very generous portions be warned but food like the music worth experiencing, the fact it was full spoke for itself
