My partner and I chose to eat here for his 21st Birthday on a Saturday night. We arrived at about 5:30-6 thinking we would get in early and have a quietish bite to eat, we were very wrong. We mussled our way through to the back to speak to a waitress about getting a seat and she put us on the last table next to the door. The tables were really packed in but it was cosy. She came over 5 or so minutes later with Menus. After waiting a good 15 minutes for her to take our order someone from another table informed us that we had to go to the till to give our order. This I didn't like I had to hussle back to the back of the restaurant to do so. No table service at all. We placed our order for food and drinks, paid and returned to our table. I didnt like paying before I had eaten but thats just me.
We then got our starter of garlic bread and tucked in as it was pre cut, our cutlery to then arrived after we had eaten half of it already! 10 minutes after this Myles' drink arrived and another 3 before mine did too. The bread was okay, too many Italian herbs on it just overpowered it unfortunately.
A good 40 minutes after we had ordered our mains arrived. We chose a pizza each and had it in a Calzone which was lovely. There wasnt a lot of tomato in mine so I asked for some sauces alongside the water I had ordered when I ordered the meal. Neither ever arrived so I got sauce myself and went without the water. It was so busy we left without pudding because we didn't want the hassle of ordering and paying for a second time or to wait another 30 minutes for it to arrive. People who were waiting for a table were in what little space was left in the restaurant. The atmosphere was lovely with a guy in black chef clothes (the owner or boss we think) talking to people and making jokes. All the kids got balls of dough to make shapes with and are baked for them to leave with which is a nice touch. Unfortunately for us it wasn't enough for us to go back. Great food but non existent service and being packed in like a sardine tin meant a poor review from us.
