We booked here after looking at the reviews on trip advisor and staying down the road at North Lakes Spa. It did not disappoint. Very good service and very good food which was served quickly. The garlic bread as so light and fresh. The kids meals were great value including a free sweet. They had their own choices plus small... More

We turned up without a booking Easter Sunday, although they were busy a table was found for us. A nice atmosphere, pleasant staff, a humungous pepper mill and exceedingly tasty food. Would definitely eat here again, I think that says it all

We stopped here when we were passing. We stopped for dinner. The place wasn't busy and we got a table straight away. Staff are nice but not the most friendliest. The food was good. It's like your typical small family run Italian restaurant. Sparsely decorated inside. Basic and simple. But the food is good so you can't argue with that.... More

I'm afraid that I wasn't too impressed with this restaurant. The food was hot but not exceptional when it came to taste. I had the mushrooms to begin which were supposed to be garlic but were more like 'tomatoe soup mushrooms' My chicken was ok but once again not exceptional.

This is a bit of a retro experience but one of my nephews favorite haunts. The menu is reasonable and the quality of the food is fine. However, the restaurant could do with a design makeover! Not a place I would return to in a hurry.

Had the worst experience at this restaurant. The food was absolutely abismal - it looks like it's out of a packet and cooked in the microwave. We actually laughed when we were served with our mains. When we queried the meals with the waiter and manager, they laughed and said it was just us as we didn't know Italian food.... More
