Twice I have been here now and the Lasagne is excellent. Slow cooked beef steak rather than Ragu and it’s pretty special. Service was good tonight but very quick. That’s fine usually but it was a bit too quick and it would have been nice...More

The atmosphere and decor are very good, very romantic I think. Service was great. The food was mixed. Me and my partner started with the bruschetta and this was awful, one burnt piece of horrible toast, topped with unseasoned, watery tomatoes. It was disgusting. However,...More

We went here on spec, attracted in by the lovely chandelier, and nice sounding menu. On a Thursday night it was an attractive place, dark panelling nicely lit, with a good buzz from several apparently happy diners. The food is Italian, very nicely cooked and...More

Sorry been away.. There's a bar area, so I'm sure you can go for a drink whilst waiting for a table.. It's a big place, so I'm sure you wouldn't have to wait to long if you didn't book. Cheers 🍀
