“Superb Italian Food......Delicious”
Reviewed 21 July 2010

I have been to this restaurant on a number of occasions now and it is definitely the best in the surrounding area. Nicely decorated, fresh and modern the food has always been very good. Lunchtime specials are very reasonable. I recently went for a friend's birthday....all 8 of us were very pleased with our meals and all have returned since. The Veal Milanese is superb but my favourite has to be the Skate Special.....the fish was perfectly cooked and a very generous portion.

Always busy when I have been there, service has been great. Good for a casual dinner but also a special one too, I have even picked up a takeaway pizza on the way home from work a couple times!!!....I will continually recommend it to my friends.

“Very dissapointed!!”
Reviewed 28 May 2010

My partner and I visited this restaurant a couple of months ago and were initially impressed with the cosy entrance area.

However, the main seating area was very noisy - ver bad acoustics, some fabrics and/or curtains please.

As to food, I ordered a Fish Stew and was extremely dissapointed. A few prawns and mussels, but the rest of it was a spiced tomato soup with fragments of fish. As to dessert, both my partner and I ordered Chocooate Brownie" but this turned out to be quite un-appetising - I left a large proportion of this.

Had high hopes for this place as the main catering staff are ex a local Gastro pub where the food quality is excellent.

Watch out for the new "Angel & Harp" near the church - that will be proper meditterian food.
