Used to visit Tavistock regularly, but unfortunately it isn't as good as it used to be. There's nothing wrong with the food it's just something is missing.

Heavy metal rock music playing throughout meal not very Italian!. Resturant was empty but left waiting ages to order / receive meals drinks etc no bread on table. When soup arrived with bread no butter hadto ask. Main chicken pan fried so over done i couldnt cut into it or even chew it! Resturant cold & drafty couldnt wait to pay the bill & leave. They did refund my chicken dish though.

We have been visiting this restaurant for quite some time and we were always quite impressed but last two times the service has been horrid. Visited yesterday again, starters came out quick but waited for 40 mins for mains. Missing sides arrived after everyone had finished their mains. Our whole party left disappointed. Overall this was not a good feeling.

I booked my daughters 21 st here and was given a huge table and carte Blanche to decorate it as I liked. The room was already set with quirky furniture, branches and lights as well as kitchen implements dangling from the ceiling so it did not Take much to add a few touches! Staff assisted and made suggestions regarding seating which was helpful.
On the night itself we were served prosecco when we arrived and an aparetif as we waited for everyone to arrive.
From then on in nothing was too much and we were astounded by the effort staff put into my daughter having the fun family night she wanted. The service was impeccable, the food delicious snd with a great variety at a fair price. Everyone present said how tasty it was.
I have since been back through the week when they have happy hour menus again demonstrating versatility in food without a tremendous cost.
Go here; it's now a firm favourite
