A quiet Friday night, we were the only ones in the restaurant. We waited at the sign telling us to 'wait here'. The waitresses were all in the middle of a chat, saw us waiting, finished their conversation, then one wandered over. She looked at me and waited, so I told her we'd like to order a pizza. She asked... More

This place has good food but the service lets it down. It was a hot day when we were there and it was very hot in the restaurant. We asked for aircon to be turned up but no one seemed to know how to do that. We all ordered pizza or pasta but it had taken a while for them... More

This restaurant makes the most delicious salmon and caper pasta, i have to stop myself visiting here otherwise i would come every day. The desserts are also beautiful. Sometimes the service is not always great, but the food is amazing and is always delivered promptly. Online ordering is another great part of this restaurant, if you're in a hurry, you... More

My other family members said their meals were good, they both had garlic prawns. Service was great but then again wasn't very busy, literally... More

We only ask for takeaways because is usually full with kids celebrating birthdays, or teenagers, or big groups of people. We like the food and think that what you pay is worth it. My favourites are the gnocchi napolitana and the dark chocolate cake for dessert. I don´t like the pizzas so much but these gnocchis are so yuum. For... More

Ordered a seafood risotto and came out not appetizing, looked like vomit. Risotto appears steamed for 25 minutes (overcooked) and seafood was disgusting. Not cooked with love, just in a hurry. I will definitely not come back there again, just a waste of money for this quality of food.

Food was oily, desserts were 3 days old and the waitress told us that. Bad atmosphere. Poor service. Would never go back

I held a lunch for my son’s birthday yesterday with his friends. While ordering the pizzas the waitress was very pushy and suggested we may like some chips or garlic bread first. I said no just the pizzas please. She insisted that we would need chips because the pizzas would be a while. I said just the pizzas please. Again,... More
