Visited this restaurant many times, as a couple, with family, girly night and with a large birthday party. Every visit has been fantastic and you are always made to feel special. The description of the menu board is not to be missed. Food amazing and a good selection for all tastes and budget. The starter, mussels are local and wonderful,... More

Had a surprise visit from my Son on the 20th December who then proceeded to take his father and I out for dinner. We had been here before in September for my birthday and chose to take our Son as he hadn't been before. Both times we were so impressed with the welcome from the staff and the food, delicious....

This was our third visit to this fab restaurant. Lovely family-run establishment, modest decor, clean toilets. Friendly staff with lots of jokes and banter. Now the most important part..the food is amazing. Whether you go for a modest pizza or a fish dish, you will not be disappointed. Price-wise it is not cheap - for us it's somewhere we visit... More

Had not visited in a while so thought we would try it out for a meal as we remembered it had been good. Our memories had not done us justice, it was fantastic. We were served by Joseph who had us in stitches the whole meal, he was fantastic at recommending dishes and recommended us this lovely bottle of Red... More

I went here last night with 2 friends. This restaurant has a great atmosphere, authentic Italian food at a good price and great staff! Staff were attentive, we weren't at all rushed, menu options were good (pizza, pasta, main meals). Overall I'm very impressed and would not hesitate to revisit or recommend!

Had a lovely meal last Sunday in Antica Roma. Grilled prawns with garlic and chilli to start followed by a wing of skate were cooked to perfection! House wine very tasty (they only serve Italian wines) and service excellent. Only slight downside was the strange music, a mixture of rock and 'just one cornetto' played slighted too loud! Would definately... More

Family party. Room was hot and felt very crowded and noisey. Staff very friendly. Food choice wide and varied to cover most of Italy plus daily specials. Good selection of wines. Good value and good sized portions.

I visited here Friday with family for a 78th birthday celebration and was pleasently surprised by the attentive service and patience from Fat Joe the waiter for our table. We had a wide selection of food which were also very nice, well cooked and the night was a delight for us all.
