“Nice Meal - but nothing special”
Reviewed 23 September 2011

Being of Italian parentage I like to support Italian restaurants locally, and whilst the staff were friendly I felt that it was very much 'so so',the food was adequate but no wow factor was present..I will try it again to give it another go, but it will need to impress a lot more otherwise I shall stick to my favourite Italian Restaurants elsewhere...Steve, Stourbridge

“Not a true Italian but a place to take kids”
Reviewed 30 October 2010

We ahve tried this restaurant on numerous occasions but have finally decided to leave well alone as it has not got any better.
If you are a real foody then avoid as the food is basic fayre and lacks any real flavour. It's cheap and cheerful so great for kids and in a nice location.
The staff are nice but sadly it's not a real italian!
