We hadn't booked but were seated quickly. A man came over to take our order and what I can only describe as squatted at the side of the table; it was another one of those 'we take your order from memory' restaurants. To be honest, I found it quite rude that I had to look down to someone on the... More

Visited for weekend lunch with parents. Attentive service, food arrived quickly, bill arrived promptly when requested and Clubcard vouchers processed with no fuss. Pizzas are great at ASK and a healthy size portion. We were too full to move on to dessert. Fourth or fifth visit to this restaurant as affordable & versatile for different occasions but needs advance booking.

Booked for an early lunch. Arrived and immediately given our nice clean table. Our waitress, Holly, was friendly, caring and patient with our two kids. Food was great considering it's a chain. The kids were also happy. Job done although I reckon it costs too much for what you get.

We were in Oxford for a fashion show at Pitt Rivers, needed food quickly and couldn't find anywhere to park. We had booked in advance and phoned to say that we were running late. When we arrived, the table had been held for us, the staff were understanding and made us very welcome. The food was great and delivered quickly.... More

Early dinner tonight after arriving from Canada on a Red Eye. Simple Italian food, good prices. My son and I both order half orders with a side salad , they only brought one half with salad and one regular. No worries all was fine. Dinner for two with wine for me and a coke for by son was 22 pounds.... More

The service was fantastic. The homemade lemonade was brilliant. The staff were friendly, polite, attentive and among the best. However for the price the food, whilst being a fair portion, and very tasty, was not the greatest. Like another reviewer, I had seafood and found it was very sparse compared to other establishments. I had the seafood risotto which was... More

Had a late afternoon meal here it was ok but I wont rush back. I had the Linguine Con Frutti di Mare the pasta was OK but there wasn't much and there was a distinct lack of seafood with it. My wife isn't a big eater and usually goes for a starter and even she commented on how little there... More

Me and my friends have had a wonderful experience in this restaurant. Food was amazing and delivered promptly. The ambience was nice and relaxed, just what we needed! I have had baked aubergines and the mushrooms as starter, followed by the pizza with gorgonzola as main. Everything very good! But what made our night so special was our waitress Giusy!... More
