Six colleagues up from London and wanted somewhere on a Tuesday night that would still have a decent atmosphere and this did. Probably two thirds full by the time we got to our 8pm table. Sat on the raised area at the back we were in one of the booths (never personally a fan of having to shuffle round one of those needing three people to get up when you need a comfort break) and by the till which wasn't great but ok. Air conditioning was freezing us to death but to be fair the waitress turned it down when we asked pretty quickly.
The table ordered a fairly wide range of starters and mains and all were enjoyed. Sardine fillets wrapped in prosciuotto to start - nicely salty with lots of flavour. I like that main courses can be ordered in a small or large size and went for a small portion of seabass with roasted peperonatt and a lemon puree and the lemon was just right, not over powering but compliementing the fish. As a side my treat was Italian fried courgettes which were . . . . ok if a little bland, the light tempura style batter seemed to lack seasoning and flavour but they were fine.
We had two non drinkers amongst us who enjoyed some of the mocktails which were all brought with regular service and the rest of us shared a bottle of red and wine - no bargains here but no outrageous prices either. Having said that my London (mostly southern) colleagues all thought it was exceptionally cheap but that's a different story.
Minor grumble at the end when post main courses we were abandoned for about 10 minutes and had to do some frantic arm waving so we could pay the the bill and head across the road to watch extra time in a World Cup game but that's a minor grumble.
