I booked a party of 22 people. Victor and his team went out of their way to make sure we had a very enjoyable evening. All the plates were empty, so the food was great and so was the service! Would definitely eat there again. Thank you !
There’s always a lovely buzz here - not loud, but happy noise.
Went fairly early so not too busy, Very tasty freshly cooked food and good friendly service! Happy to go there again for a special occasion!
Excellent service and great food. Lovely !!!!! Would go again, restaurant allowed me to decorate as was a special birthday. Wonderful choice of food, very tasty.
Sat outside with attentive service on a warm evening - a very good start! We asked for a G & T and were offered a choice including a Saffron Gin which we opted for - wonderful! The speciality of the day was a Half Lobster on a bed of Tomato Linguine which two of our group chose. One of our group chose the Cod (Merluzza) and I opted for The Carbonara - one of the tastiest I can remember. As we had partaken in starters we gave desserts a miss, although nearly gave in to the tiramisu or zabaglione that were listed! We had a bottle of house white which was reasonably priced at £16.95. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.
We always like to try new restaurants as that is the time when the food is normally at its best. We were certainly not disappointed with this new Italian. The food was excellent and for tasted very authentic. The staff were very welcoming and the service was excellent.
The food was absolutely fab, felt very authentically Italian! The wine was great, we had a bottle of gavi Di Gavi. And the staff were fab, such a lovely lady looking after us all evening - and taught us some Italian! Great evening, will definitely return.
This restaurant will guarantee a warm welcome, lively atmosphere, extremely helpful staff and absolutely delicious food. We were offered fresh fish of the day dishes which 2 of us had whilst the other 2 had dishes from the main menu. All was perfect portion sizes.
Enjoyed the atmosphere and service was good. The Linguine Crazy Alfredo was supposed to be hot and contain chillis but was not hot at all. A bit disappointing for two of our party who like spicy food. Would go back again and see if it was just a blip.
The food was superb and didn't think they were overpriced at all. The service expectations were good and they were very patient with our group as we were not ready to order after a couple of visits to our table by the waitress. Would definitely visit again.
