Lunch time meet up with friends and it was very busy and was glad someone had booked a table. The staff are so helpful and friendly. The ambiance is good and the food was good and priced very very reasonable. Can understand why it was busy. Finding these places can be hard. Parking is not an issue. It's a little gem of a place and we will certainly be back.

Amazing place been going here for a while now. We booked it for my mums surprise birthday and we had extra people arrive. We had a huge table already but they managed to accommodate us. We Were well looked after and made to feel extremely welcome. The food was superb and the staff took care of us. We will continue to go back as often as possible

We arrived on a Saturday night direct from international flights (from Australia) without a booking and were really fortunate that the maitre de accommodated us without too much fuss. We did have to wait for 20 or so minutes and then had to vacate the table within the hour but given how fatigued we were we wanted an early night anyway.

The service was slick, waiting staff proficient and the pasta delicious. The parmesan cheese was the extra kick required for perfection of the dish. If I was a local I think my carb cravings would be fulfilled with dangerous frequency at this delightful venue.

Arrived unannounced and with no reservation early on a Friday evening and it was full. The owner looked at us in disbelief-no reservations? He sat us down and said" He would see if he could fit us in" We ordered a couple of vodka's at £2.75 and a can of coke £1. We got talking to a couple that were waiting on a takeaway they had ordered-5 pizza's for a birthday party, he said they are the best in the city-good start. We were lucky he squeezed us in a table for 2. Our order was taken immediately and we started with Deep fried stuffed mushrooms-delicious and a prawn cocktail equally delicious. This was swiftly followed by grilled sirloin steak with mushrooms and peppercorn sauce-very good. My wife vouched for her pork medallions and parma ham in a Marsala sauce which she said was divine, came with a variety of vegetables. We finished with a trio of ice cream and something I can't remember the name but it resembled a large ice cream Ferrero Roche and tasted heavenly. Loads of staff to cope with a very busy restaurant. All very professional and friendly. What a find !!!!!!!!. Bill for 4 drinks and 2x3 course al a carte came to £64.40. Well worth the money. Can't wait to go back. Oh and I'll definitely make a reservation next time.
