I went to the restaurant to catch up with a friend. The food was amazing, we both got the mushroom ravioli. The mains were so delicious. The cholocate cake was a bit dry, but it was well paired with the wine.

The staff are amicable, and the service was timely.

I would definitely go again!

I wish they had more cocktails, but they have an extensive wine list.

By far the best Italian restaurant in the country. Everything was 10/10 the starter was the special a pork and Broccoli sourdough bruschetta it was lovely, then for the main I had the slow cooked beef cheek rigatoni which was the best pasta dish I’ve ever had. For my dessert I had the chocolate mouse which was light and delicious. We had a bottle of banfi gavi which was relatively well priced from their selection of 350 Italian wines , you can go wrong dinning here. The service was also 10/10 very quick friendly and helpful. Thanks, I’ll be back again.

Disappointed with the food. We ordered multiple dishes and all were very average. Service and atmosphere were good, but food not the best.

Unfortunately they do not offer pizza anymore (which is what they were famous for in the past) and they decided to replace it pinsa, that is something totally different (delicious but different). In general everything was amazing, as usual

Everything was great however a waiter was getting a number from a girl at a table with a group of girls. A bit unprofessional and could clearly see he was embarrassed afterwards as they kissed at the table too and had lipstick on his cheek. Really good food and drinks but that just let it down a bit hence the review but that just let the service down a bit

We eat here fairly regularly and have never been disappointed. The staff are always welcoming and helpful. I would recommend the smoked salmon and mozzarella and for the main course Spaghetti ai Frutti Di Mara They make the best Aperol Spritz in town. We shared a bottle of Rose which the waiter recommended. It went very well with our meal.

Was running later than the restaurant's 15-minute grace period due to traffic and staff were happy to hold our table for us and not rush us :) Friendly and chatty staff, overall great service :) Food is amazing, have been and will continue to be a long-term returning customer!
