Tried for the first time last night for a meal with the other half and parents and was far from disappointed, Was a busy Saturday night with a few large tables which helped create a great atmosphere in such a welcoming, warm place. The service was exceptional from all the staff, especially Laura who listened to my dad;s bad jokes.... More

Great to see this local restaurant in Urmston, nice and busy on a Saturday night. Great atmosphere and feels very authentic, if a little ‘old school’. I cannot really understand the need to put veg and potatoes on a separate dish, could they not go on the same plate and save on washing up? The potatoes looked a little uninspiring,... More

We came to this restaurant to celebrate my mum's birthday with the family at least 20 of us attended the meal. We preordered the food & added more food when we arrived. The staff was very welcoming, we got offered drinks the minute we sat down. Soon after we were served our starters. The starters were amazing as the whole... More

Visited on a very busy period but the staff were attentive, food is always very good and consistent. Wish they had more options for gluten free but all in all a great restaurant for us locals.

From being an outstanding Italian that in my opinion could not be touched locally to sadly a place I would think twice before trying again, sadly when a restaurant changes its chef it's a big risk, not only has this chef changed so many things on the menu taste wise but to also guzzle down a hand full of cheese...

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and it has always been very good. However we booked for New Years Eve, we had eaten here last New Year and had a great time, but this time it was a complete disaster. I had booked the table as early as August/September and requested a table in a certain area of... More

I pre booked a table for four and a baby( did specify the baby still in a pram). When we arrived , they did not have a table ready and then wanted to put the baby near the front door, they were totally ignorant and we ended up leaving and the manager literally did not give a toss . He... More

When we arrived at midday we assumed we’d be sat downstairs for our Christmas meal. We were told we’d have to go upstairs which would have been fine but we had a baby sleeping in a pram with us. Not wanting to disturb the baby who’d only just got to sleep, me and my brother in law were forced to... More
