Went with a group of 14 people. It was a cold night and the heating was only turned on when we arrived. The service was very slow. Ordered a bottle of wine which they had run out of so had to make a second choice....More

I hate leaving reviews like this and can only say that it was entirely my own fault that I didn't check Tripadvisor before entering. Thames is a very long town, interesting history-wise and from the still existing buildings scattered along Pollen Street (the main Street)....More

Lousy service, no idea about customer satisfaction, have no idea what a ceasar salad even is, grossly overpriced and the toilets are disgusting. Eat here at your own peril.

We were a group having a mid-winter Christmas and it was ideal. Menu is a little limited, but everyone was happy. (I went against the trend and steak and chips, but the pasta eaters were satisfied, too). Small, good service Friendly, relaxed and good value...More

A warm ambient authentic italian style restaurant, perfect for dining with a group or just the two of you. We have a table outside during the warmer months for takeaway diners, and a nice takeaway waiting area. Located in the middle of town, there is plenty of parking. We are licenced and allow BYO as well. Buon appetito!!
