We went there on Saturday evening for my husband's birthday. The food was great (we had the tasting menu), the wine was good, the service was great and the waiter knew all about wine.

If using a Groupon voucher be sure to read the small print as you have to choose from a special menu du jour. In saying that, the choice & quality of food was excellent (can only speak of the seafood option) & the staff were most accommodating, bearing in mind I had not followed procedure. Overall a good experience although I would probably recommend they charge a nit more if necessary and offer the full menu as was a little disappointing.

"Bad"2/6

I had high expectations as I have been to this restaurant before and absolutely loved it. Unfortunately the second experience was not as expected. The tuna meal I ordered tasted funny and was not a tuna steak, although the price hinted it was. There was not complimentary bread, which was served to us the first time and I would expect from any restaurant that label itself Italian. On the flipside wine and starter were really good and very nice staff, but not to justify the price. It’s a shame for the cooked food!

The service was very slow. They prioritised a Christmas party and people sat at the bar who all entered after us. We waited 20 minutes for just water for the table. The food was also slow to arrive. They did then provide us with a free glass of prosecco each to apologise. The food was delicious, shame about the slow service.

Great Italian food which was more unusual and had a Sardinian bias. Friendly staff and a relaxed environment Would recommend as a place to go for a special evening

Very friendly and helpful staff, with a relaxed atmosphere. Great for a good catch up with a friend and not rushed. A good menu selection of wine and food. Food very typical Italian cuisine.
