We loved the food, it was delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. There was only one negative thing - while we were sitting waiting for our taxi, a few homeless people came in and sat next to us, slouched around, looked like they were falling asleep. I have nothing against homeless people and would help them any way I could, the restaurant were may be giving them some food which I hold my hat off too. It just made me feel a bit uneasy.
We had a warm and friendly welcome. We had olives and bread placed onto our table, which we thought were a freebie, but no, we were charged, as it was added to our bill. Would not of ordered these, so I think they should ask if you want these items or not. Also we ordered a bottle of wine from the list which said £11-95 but at the end of our meal, the bill had be altered to £12-95???? The starters were fab, but our main course of Pasta Salmon in a Cream sauce was bland with far to much cream. We were given an Amaretto shot for free which was very nice, even though a cheap version. The Manager and staff are lovely, but we were a little disappointed with this visit. We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions, but feel very let down this time.
Very friendly place, and great food, did via Groupon great value for money and despite being a Monday was quite busy. Lovely staff very welcoming
