Having had dinner at this restaurant before, we were shocked to see such a change. The table wasn't quite set when we arrived, the menus took 15 mins to arrive, I advised our elusive waitress that my 91 year old father in law is a diabetic and needed some bread, she said "I'll get some for you as it is...

The gentleman who greeted us was always polite and helpful, shame that could not be said very "starchy" unfriendly waitresses. Now we move onto the very ordinary food, either too too salty or so very vey bland. Do not waste your time in a competitive area for Italian food where there are so many better places!

I hired the entire back portion of this restaurant to entertain 50 guests for a birthday party. While the food was excellent, the service was somewhere between inadequate and non-existent, with a single waitress who was overstretched and unfriendly. When, after an hour and a half of guests having to serve their own champagne, search out their own wine bottles... More

Felt like we had hit god's waiting room and felt very young compared to those all around us. But that aside the food was totally authentic and seriously tasty Italian fare. Missed out on the popular rabbit special but then had the osso bucco and smiled like Matt Preston looking at a muffin. If you are sick of sharing your... More

I've had dinner here many times over the years. Fratinni is a family favourite where the food has been excellent ever time I've visited.

Mains ordered ; spaghetti marinara which was good not great, grilled fillet steak with veggies. Steak was ordinary and petti di pollo. Chicken was sliced in three thin pieces and does not come with any sides. Not sure how it is considered ad... More

The décor is lovely with polished floor boards , it is a clean and very attractive restaurant but it stops there. So loud you cannot hear a conversation with your partner unless you join all the other raising their voice to talk. The food is overpriced and I did not find it as authentic as other Italian restaurants in the... More
