Sadly there's not an option for no stars. I came here with a group for a birthday meal, the food was appalling. The "cream" sauces were exactly that, nothing but cream. Shop bought packet pasta, packet parmesan cheese. "Chicken" meals that looked like something you would receive in prison. Extremely slow service, sat with our main meal plates in front... More

We've been here a few times and ordered the pizza as takeaway too. Great service, cheap and tasty food and wine and an authentic and intimate atmosphere.

7 of us sat down for a meal. Looking forward to my Daughters birthday meal, starters not too bad except for the garlic mushrooms which were like a plate of mushroom soup with a salad. Mains what can I say, my pasta was tortellini which was not homemade, obviously bought from Tesco or somewhere hard and covered in a thick... More

Visited recently staff very welcoming and accommodating. On ordering the food and enjoying the wine, I noticed that the place was quite dirty for example a lot of dirt and dust on the daydo rails. The starter was good but for an Italian restaurant, use good vibrant tomatoes not the cheap English tasteless ones. The main meal was good but... More

And the mixed seafood tomato pasta. Generous portions very hot and cooked fresh. The... More

I adore this place so much and it ignited a long standing love affair with everything Italian especially the food. It's the closest I've got to food as delicious as in Italy itself. It's very authentic with an easy atmosphere inside. Cosy decor and a view into the kitchen. The house wines are lovely and we often have a carafe... More

Very generous portions and delicious, Restaurant packed, always a good sign though disappointed. No fish dishes on main menu and only potatoes and salad with... More

A crowd of 14 of us embarked on a super evening in this little gem of an eatery. Good wholesome food and the service was great considering the number of us. Everyone enjoyed it.
