“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

For an Italian restaurant the garlic bread and mushrooms lacked any garlic.Mushroom starter bland and boring, king prawns were not too bad but swimming in garlic butter (not a lot of garlic)
Main courses were also boring and bland, the lasagna was too hot to eat (microwaved possibly) and bologna's tasteless.
The waitress lacked knowledge of house wine and this was terrible when it arrived
Not enough hand towels for eating garlic bread had to ask for extra
I all ver disappointing will not be returning

“Shockingly poor service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

we had to wait 45 minutes for a starter & then the main arrived 2 hours after we got there.
When we complained the manager was rude & dismissive.We will never return feel others should not be treated this way.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014 via mobile

Ate here for the second time last night and unfortunately we were left rather disappointed. The starters were nice- mussels in particular were very good however we had to ask for water and cutlery. When spending a decent amount at a restaurant like this the little things should be taken care of.

For mains we ordered the seafood risotto and a medium steak. The steak came out extremely well done so we sent it back. No offer to take the other dish to keep warm while we wait and hardly any apology. After I had finished my dish which was very chewy- the steak came out with no apology. The new sauce was watery (obviously rushed) and the steak was burned on the outside and completely raw in the middle.

The lack of apology was very disappointing. We paid and left without desert.

Overall service was poor and the food was rushed. Lack of care and service
