“Nice food, excellent value, friendly service”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

This was our 3rd visit and on a fairly busy Friday
Very nice meals again.
Garlic and tomato pizza base to start, nice texture and crispy edges.
I had chicken cacciatore, lots of fresh veg, lovely soft chicken breast and tomato.Even had olives added.
My partner had simple lasagne and it was up to most Italian restaurants weve eaten in and excellent value.
Add to this that you can byow. Corkage charge but still big saving.
Staff very friendly.
Cant understand any poor revs based on our 3 visits.
Recommend and will be back

“Great little BYO Italian”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

We had a lovely dinner here, very relaxed Italian restaurant with a classic menu serving all the pizza and pasta favourites as well as some different dishes like the prawn with garlic cream sauce and rice which was delicious!
We brought our own bubbly, the restaurant are happy to provide flutes and ice buckets so when the bill came we were all very pleasantly surprised.
Top tip: Try to sit away from the doorway as it can be draughty!
Staff really friendly and accommodating we'll be back...

“oh dear”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Recently visited this restaurant. We were put upstairs, it was absolutely freezing, had to wear my coat. Damp up one of the walls with plaster peeling off, they tried to hide it with a plant. Service was extremely poor, ordered a pasta dish was not offered a spoon which in my experience is usual when eating pasta. No black pepper or parmesan cheese offered. Would of asked but by time the staff arrived my food had been eaten, could of waited but it was a good twenty minutes before she arrived and it would of been cold. Meal was actually very nice. Boyfriend was not happy has he only had a jumper on, so was very cold. Food is nice but could not be appreciated due to the cold. Very disappointing, wish we had gone to the chip ship and saved our money.
Good food, no atmosphere and poor service. Get your act together and stop being so tight with the heating and staff, as you have just lost a good customer.

“Worst meal ever I feel physically sick avoid this place at all costs”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

The worst meal I have ever eaten, the only good thing about this place is the exit door. Pizza was like Asda basics but not as tasty, and my wife's seafood looked like a basics ready meal, also she had whitebait that was off. Absolutely awful

Nice ambiance and outstanding food. Service good, even with two out of three wait staff out due to illness/accident
