The restaurant interior was welcoming and staff were friendly, however they weren't very attentive. The food was good although I was expecting more given the price

An authentic Italian menu with the usual selection of pasta and pizza and a daily specials board. The wine list is perfectly adequate. The food was very good as was the service.

Fabulous options even if you have dairy free/ gluten free requirements (I had a choice of about 10 main courses as they do gluten free pasta). They are looking into gluten free bread for the future.

THERE WERE FAR TOO MANY TABLES PACKED INTO THE AREA WHERE WE WERE SEATED WHICH MEANT THAT WE WERE UNABLE TO HOLD A PRIVATE CONVERSATION & WERE FORCED TO LISTEN TO THE CONVERSATION OF THE TWO NEIGHBOURING TABLES.POSSIBLY THE RESTAURANT IS A VICTIM OF ITS OWN SUCCESS ?
THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD WAS GOOD BUT PORTIONS WERE VERY MEASURED-I WOULD GO AS FAR AS SAYING "MEAN"IN PARTICULAR THE SOUP WHICH WAS LITERALLY A FEW SPOONFULS.
MY WIFE CHOSE THE SPICED CHICKEN BREAST AGAIN THE TASTE WAS EXCELLENT BUT THE QUANTITY WAS POOR AND HALF OF THE PORTION WAS CHICKEN WING NOT BREAST.
WE SHALL NOT BE RETURNING AND WE BOTH CONSIDER THE RESTAURANT TO BE EXPENSIVE AND RATHER POOR VALUE FOR MONEY.WE HAVE EATEN MEALS DELIVERING SIMILAR QUALITY IN OTHER CENTRAL BATH RESTAURANTS WHICH WERE MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE,WITH MORE GENEROUS PORTIONS AND WITH A FAR NICER ABMBIENCE.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious. The wine which our waitress recommended was really nice and reasonably priced and service overall was great. It was lively with all tables filled several times over but was a bit loud for general conversation. A sing song to ‘just one cornetto’ at the end of the meal rounded the evening off nicely!

We had 3 courses each and they were amazing. The steak and lamb shank were awesome and the staff where so friendly really made you feel welcome. Only thing I would say that instead of chart music they could play authentic Italian music or ambience music this to me would set a better mood.

This was the second time we have been to this restaurant the first time as a couple the second with friends and it did not disappoint our friends were impressed by the food and location, the restaurant was air conditioned which was needed in the extreme hot weather we are experiencing, the service was very efficient and the food was very good again, I would recommend this restaurant, we generally book chain restaurants and wanted a change, we will be back.
