We called in tonight after dropping our cases at home when just getting from Italy. Our food was lovely, really tasty and well presented. The service was great and they totally understood that we were tired so gave us a quiet table away from a big party they were expecting. Good food and good service.

Thank Maria O

We visited for my nieces birthday with her friends. They made their own pizzas which I was very surprised with. They were huge! The adults also had food and we were all so stuffed afterwards. Service was excellent. Very friendly staff who make you feel welcome. An all round pleasant experience

We went on a Tuesday evening for a birthday. We thought that the restaurant closed at 9pm as that is what the website advised, however we were pleasantly suprised to find out they have an alcohol licence until 12pm. The food was absolutely amazing and portions very large. All of us had empty plates. The staff were very friendly, in particular Nathan. He is very good at his job and made us feel very welcome. An asset to the restaurant. Overall this restaurant was extremely good and the food was very very nice.We will be returning.

We called on spec at about 8pm on Friday evening and seated immediately. Drinks order was taken and we were given plenty of time to order. We watched as the guests whinwere already in dwindled away to only us.
Our starter of bruchetta, breadcrumbed mozzarella and the garlic mushrooms were absolutely delicious. Unfortunately that's where it stopped. The meatball pizza was not the best. The meatballs were far too Henry and were dry and had visible fat lumps in them. The pizza garlic bread and cheese wasn't the best. Although the hot and spicy penne pasta was what it said on the tin and my hubby enjoyed it. All in all I may go back but in happy hour as infeelmthe food justifies a happy hour price not an evening meal price. Wasn't as nice as it was when you first took over in afraid. Whatever you have changed in the meantime, change it back.

Hi Nichola C, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your starter and the pasta. Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the meatball pizza, apologise if they were a bit overcooked, on the other side i can assure that we use only finest quality beef and pork mince, and i believe that the fat lumps are instead pieces of bread, cause we soak it in milk as the real Italian recipe and not using cheap breadcrumb as the majority of the restaurants. We do appreciate you let us know, thank you
