Had very high hopes for this place as it was rated Number 5 for local restaurants on TripAdvisor. Perhaps the fact that the burrito snack van in Epsom marketplace is ranked number 4 should have been a warning . The restaurant itself was stuffy and airless with music being pumped out far too loud from the speakers – as it was a warm day we considered sitting outside, but the garden area looked like a pub beer garden rather than restaurant and didn’t appeal to us whatsoever. Service was slightly clumsy, despite the restaurant being very quiet. Food was farily decent but over-salted and amounts to pretty standard Italian ‘pizza and pasta’ fare. We opted mostly for seafood options, which tasted fresh. The toilets were terrible. The gents had two sinks - one had no working tap and on the other the tap wasn't actually over the sink itself, so spilled water everywhere. The ultimate insult though was being overcharged by 25%. Fortunately I spotted the error and queried it with the staff who corrected the bill. Overall a disappointing experience – we will not be returning.
