“Simply superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Have been to this restaurant on several occasions over last couple of years and I have never been disappointed. The food is delicious and the service is exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble - we were squeezed in on Saturday night and no matter how busy the staff are always aware of what stage you are at with your meal - they are all very friendly and polite. The pizzas are definitely thee best in town!

“Log fired pizza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Probably the best pizza I have ever tasted. Shame they font do Halal chicken option as that would just be perfection. But the banoffee pie is to die for. Home made and do fresh, definitely visiting again.

Thank you for your recommendation. I appreciate your comment regarding the Halal chicken and will be passing this on to our head chef. We do cater to many dietary requests and have been updating the menu to reflect our gluten free pizza and pasta dishes.

The pizza was fresh and full of flavour and the creme brûlée was from heaven. Cocktails weren't amazing but it's an Italian restaurant not a cocktail bar. Staff super friendly.

I am pleased that you enjoyed your food. I will be looking into extra training for our bar team to ensure that our guests receive a great cocktail. I believe in ensuring that any item on our menu needs to be made with perfection if we are planning to sell it. Thank you for your feedback.
