“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

We ate here on Sunday evening, there was almost 20 of us, the waiter did a fantastic job ensuring we were well catered for even though he only had one other waitress, the food was served swiftly and all correct (which is sometimes hard for a large party) the quality of the food was very good, I would definitely return and would recommend it to others.

“You need to go!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This restaurant has a varied extensive menu with good home cooked quality food. After eating their recently I can say the food was excellent, very fresh and tasty. the service from the owner and his staff was very attentive and his passion was there to be seen. He made sure your bread baskets were refilled and drinks were plentiful. A complimentary amaretto was given at the end of the meal. As local people it's nice to support local business especially where you see the owner working very hard to make a successful restaurant.
We wish him all continued success.

“Nice Friendly Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

I love my Italian food and regularly dine in my home town. I chose this restaurant as it seemed to have a good rating and was conveniently situated.
The food was good, but I think I have been spoilt by my local Italian were i would rate the food as excellent.
The final bill came to £72 for starter. main, dessert, coffee and wine (of which my wine accounted for practically 50%) - Reasonable for the quantity and quality of food but not exceptional.
The staff were a pleasure, extremely friendly and chatty and I was also treated to several complimentary Strega's.
