If this review was solely about the food it would be 5 stars! However, slow & disjointed service spoils the affair. The waitresses look great and are generally very pleasant but they just seem all over the place. Two separate visits from two different girls...More

I love Irmas food, it never disappoints. However on my most recent visit I found some of the girls who were waiting staff had a bad attitude and acted very bolshy. Me and my friends all immediately picked up on this behaviour and all agreed...More

Food was very good but the restaurant is so so noisy. Too many hard surfaces and no soundproofing at all. Just like being back in the school dinning hall! Shame that the food was spoiled by the sore ears.

Visited here once, the food a lower standard than pizza express, but for more money. So noisy we couldn't talk to each other. I won't be returning.

We enjoy coming here and the girls are lovely and friendly. The pizza and wine are both nice but overpriced but we are always made to feel welcome. Enjoyable.
