“The place was buzzing!”
Reviewed 3 March 2013

We booked the whole place on a Saturday night, 54 people for a fundraising meal for the Scout Group. We had brought in live music. Neil, the owner worked with us to lay out the tables as we wanted.
We had an excellent meal, great service with a smile from all the staff. We can't understand the poor reviews, we have never had a poor meal or bad service here. Unlike the Palace Tandoori along the road which , heaving though it may be, is absolutely abysmal.
Who complains about the chefs viewing the dining area? Jeez! In many top restaurants people pay over the odds to be in close proximity to the action.
Prices? No different from most other pizzerias, Wines? Well, you get what you pay for. I've been in far worse places in Italy.

we had lunch here last saturday. The staff were extremely friendly. We were offered free garlic bread, and the pasta was fabulous. I look forward to going back.

“indifferent”
Reviewed 2 February 2013

We have eaten here a number of times but will now never return. The food was always average and overpriced but when you book a table and have not been served 2 hours later you expect more than complacency when you complain. Ended up leaving and going to the chip shop on the corner

“nice owner”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

this place is a nice place to pop into when you fancy nice service, a good laugh with the owner, but it just pizza at the end of the day. Though you can make it as expensive or cheap as you like, an enjoyable time has been had there.

“Dolce Italian”
Reviewed 13 January 2013 via mobile

This is a super Italian restaurant and I would recommend it to anyone. Really nice staff and excellent food. It would be a great place to come with small children but equally nice for couples as the room is spacious and the tables have great separation between them.
