I really like eating there but recently I just don't feel like going there. The two younger girls, mother and daughter are lovely but the eldest, the owner has no idea what hospitality and manners are - zero!!!!

I am confident I would produce better Italian food at home in my own kitchen. Very mediocre standard on the 'bread and butter' Italian dishes. It took 25 minutes to take our order and a further 30 mins for the food to reach our table. After requesting drinks a couple of times, they arrived half way into our meal. Everything... More

Such a nice place to eat. We regularly go and the waitress is so friendly and attentive. We brought our boy with us this time and she was very helpful with the menu.

Had a lovely meal here, very reasonable priced and if you wish, you can bring in your own wine, which is great as the cost of a bottle of wine when eating out is expensive. Very relaxed vibe about the place and we had a lovely waitress who was extremely friendly. The menu was good and covered a range of... More

We ate there recently for the first time. Food was excellent. The only fault, I couldn't finish it, as we got starters.

Waiting 2 hours for main course. Waitress extremely rude and did not apologise for the wait. Instead was extremely confrontational. I think it was the owner. Food was good but too little too late.

I've been going here for years, always the same staff who are extremely friendly even when under pressure. The food is consistently delicious. Couldn't recommend more.
