Went here for a business dinner. We ordered Pizza Margherita and a T-Bone steak. The service was excellent. It is a simple but good restaurant with very attentive service. The owner is Greek. Excellent value.

Medium steak was red and blue on the inside. Politely complaint gets met with blank stare. Waiter was missing most of the evening. No apology offered by floor manager with tacky weave. Horrible experience.

After being away for a week my daughter came home hungry on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone else was tired and warm at home so the two of us went for dinner and brought take-aways home for my eldest and my wife. We were greeted by Costa, an old friend from Ron's Hideaway days. Faith enjoyed the snails and a large... More

A italian restaurant, with great pizza and pasta. But even the seafood is good. Excellent service . Reasonably priced and some really good specials. You can choose to eat inside or outside. Has become a regular visit on business trips as close to the bed and breakfast where I stay. Plenty parking as it is in a small shopping centre,... More

Pizza's were good as were the snail starters. T Bone steak is good value and my 14 year-old daughter devoured it without complaint.... More

I love pasta from IL Capo, and for me the closest one is in Bergbron. It's been our take away joint for the last two years at least twice a month. But recently for the last six months I don't know what has changed but something has changed. It could be management or chefs. Recently the pasta is no longer... More
