We went here for lunch on a very hot day. The place was lovely and cool inside. The meals were quite a long time coming and extremely large, although tasty. There wasn't a lot of GF food available. The staff were helpful and friendly.

Great service and meals. Both hubby and I had a veal dish. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the meals were delivered timely. I would recommend eating here.

I use to really like this place. But i think it's under new management. Service was pretty bad, no problem seating you but then they seem to forget your there. Pasta was drowning in sause that wasn't reduced. Found no love in the cooking!

We stopped here on a busy Sunday for lunch. My partner and I both had steaks, and agreed that they were the best we had eaten in quite a while, cooked as requested. The service was good, with the young staff buzzing around enthusiastically ensuring...More
