I visited with 4 friends for the first time last night. The service was quick and the food tasty. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. The x84 bus stops right outside the door if you don't wish to drive. Only minor criticism is that the menu was on the board in Italian so our waiter had to... More

Fab friendly family run Italian ristorante. Excellent food. We were presented with bruschetta and olives while we decided to have their lobster ravioli for lunch. Followed by a fresh fig, pear and amaretti tart and a Tiramisu. Prosecco and cappuccinos good too. Limited number of covers, about 25, so you MUST book to ensure you get a table. Turned away...

We arrived on the top floor which has a retractable roof which should be fantastic in summer but it's cold with the roof on in winter but they do provide blankets which you will need or better still sit a floor below . I would love to sit there on a clear summers night . The food was the best... More

Went last night after seeing all the good reviews on trip adviser. Made to feel really welcome on arrival. Had some really good food with excellent service. Cannot believe we have not been here before. It was well worth the trip from Leeds, so nice to go to a family restaurant instead of all the chains that are appearing everywhere.... More

Visited with friends, was really looking forward to it as had heard fantastic things about the food. Unfortunately I was left disappointed with both starter and main. This was a real shame as I loved the ambience and the waiter was great. My asparagus starter was over cooked and the ham it was wrapped in was soggy. My chicken pasta... More

We visited this restaurant for my sons 30th birthday, there were nine of us with half of us vegetarians. The evening service is from a limited chalk board choice which usually offers Italian meat and fish choices, however I rang a few days before and the owner kindly put several veggie choices on, all of which were delicious. The restaurant... More

Our group of ladies visit once a month for lunch.....we all look forward to it and I suspect some of us sneak in more often.... Value for money is astonishing and the welcome is fantastic. I would be proud to bring any of my friends here, yes, it's like a little Italian holiday! Tables are quite crowded together but that... More
