Twas Christmas Eve and we were meeting friends in the evening in Leatherhead. What a nightmare to find a place that's open after 6pm and isn't charging a special seasonal sixty quid a head for a menu with three options. Ringing around the local Italians, this name came up and upon enquiry, it was obvious they were treating Christmas Eve like any other Saturday night. So we booked, working on the principle that even if we were hustled out reasonably quickly, at least we'd have eaten before heading to the pub. We couldn't have been more wrong. The place was really busy and buzzy, yet not so noisy that we couldn't chat. The welcome was genuine, the vibe relaxed, the service effortlessly professional and the food was excellent. Great value for money, too! So what could have been a fraught and 'distressed purchase' meal on an awkward public holiday turned into a lovely occasion and a happy discovery of another great restaurant in Leatherhead (don't forget Caesar's, different kind of place but also very good!) We stayed far longer than we expected to and were made to feel very welcome, and left knowing that we'll be back in 2012 for repeat visits. Strongly recommend this place!
