Went there for the first time yesterday and was really impressed. Food and service were both excellent, and prices are very reasonable. Only negative comment is that the 'Specials' menu seems slightly over-priced compared to the 'a la carte', so I'd just stick to the latter, which really is very good indeed. I ate at a Michelin starred restaurant in... More

First visit to this davanti and it won't be the last. Food was excellent. I always try to have something different as I get quite bored with typical Italian restaurants. This one had an amazing special. A true taste of tuscany it was called. Tuscany sausages cooked with loads of different types of beans and tomato and it came with... More

What a fabulous place, such a large menu to choose from: typical pizzas and pasta, steaks, chicken, seafood. Huge scallops. A very plush restaurant, not expensive but sensibly priced. Excellent service provided, friendly and attentive. Food arrives fairly quickly. Can't fault this place at all.

(He was the manager I take it a oldish guy ) He practically threw some menus at us, and came back within minutes for our order. Food was pretty much average, starters of calamari and bruschetta, sirloin steaks... More

The atmosphere was fantastic, the service was impeccable! I had the lamb dish which was amazing, my husband had the steak which was also incredible. The standard has never dropped which makes us keep returning! Keep it up guys x

Visited this restaurant for Sunday lunch with my mother. She has been very poorly lately but as her health has started to improve so has her appetite!!! We both chose the traditional roast beef lunch which arrived with a plentiful selection of vegetables. My mother (aged 85) was delighted at the selection of cabbage, carrots, turnip, broccoli and parsnip. All... More

Food and service were good as it was quiet yet all you could hear from the kitchen was the chef swearing. Havent been back since
