What a great night. We were greeted and taken to our table by a friendly waiter. We ordered starters and mains, both arrived promptly and were delicious. The service throughout our meal was first class. I look forward to going back and sampling more of the menu offerings.

Perfect place to take the wife, lovely atmosphere and ideal for a quick, easy, midweek dinner. We shared a garlic bread with cheese to start, which was one of the best I've had in a long time! We opted for a half and half pizza/pasta combo for main, which was again outstanding, well presented and delicious. I was quite surprised... More

Visited here with my friend here sometime last year. There service and food had always been great until now. Ordered the garlic bread as a starter which when it came out was disgusting we asked for it to be remade for it to come out worse. The worst garlic bread we have ever had. The managers response when we complained... More

For main I had the misto pizza which had salami, pepperoni, spicy sausage and Parma ham, so many toppings it was great 😂 pizza tasted... More

Came here for a friend's birthday over the New Year.. the staff set up balloons and arranged a cosy booth for us. The staff, service, food and drinks were all fantastic and it was excellent value for money. No faults what so ever and I will be returning and recommending! *****

Not as good as I hoped it would be. The risotto was incredibly salty and the poached egg was rock hard. Others in the party who had a different risotto also commented on the saltiness. Service was ok to slow. On the whole just ok.

I came here in October with a group of friends and the food was really nice. The lunch menu was really good value and there was a nice selection of food on the menu. I had garlic pizza bread for my starter and I had a pasta in tomato sauce for my main course and everything was really good. Our... More

Visited this restaurant after an afternoon theatre visit as had heard it was good, but I am afraid I found it quite disappointing. As it was a late lunch early tea visit I was not surprised there were not many diners so there was very little atmosphere. the waitress was friendly enough but when the food arrived, a calzone pizza...
