“Wonderful meal and service”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Myself and 5 others had a superb meal this evening.
We all had pizza which was delicious. There were 2 waitresses working. Lexi, our waitress was charming and very efficient. The other waitress was very friendly and appeared efficient.
The wine, as always was superb and very reasonable.
A very enjoyable evening.

“Garlic, garlic, garlic and more garlic ”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

If you love garlic then this is the place for you. Pizza was ok a bit hard/ burnt but I could get over that but the garlic smothered over it really ruined it. My partners dinner wasn't any better. With a Tesco value source flavor she wasn't all that impressed. Soft drinks come straight from a warm 2 litre bottle with no ice to help. Not the best of nights but got much worse as a coach load of students came in to put the curry on top. After that we became 2nd best and waited ages to get our plates removed and get our bill. Sorry Never again.

“authentic Italian food”
Reviewed 15 August 2014 via mobile

Ate here this evening with my wife. She had a large stone baked pizza, I ate a plate of pasta. Both delicious. These plus two glasses of wine came to £14.80. Great value. Highly reccomended.

“1 waitress on a Saturday night for a fully packed HOT restaurant whilst the owners sit back, watch and complain”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

We were recommended this restaurant and our experience was surreal and not a good one at that. 1 waitress for the whole venue on a Saturday night!! The owners just sat and watched her work herself crazy, only to then complain to her resulting in the poor girl crying at our table.
Food was very average. Would honestly say this is one of the worst italians I have ever eaten at. Fair enough not to have air con but a fan or 2 at least would have sufficed. Hot and Sweaty!!
VERY dissappointed ...

Reviewed 27 July 2014

Some aspects of the experience were good:
Good mussels excellent flavour.
Salmon was awful over cooked and chewy salad consisted of lettuce and tomato.
Needs attention !!
Very hot atmosphere no air conditioning or fans . Won't be returning
