    First time eating here and was not disappointed. We were greeted well with a friendly and polite waiter who seemed to genuinely care. The food was very good indeed and so much of it - certainly didn't need to get a drive thru afterwards. I was surprised that there were not many people here considering the quality of the food - the only thing I would say is that it may be a little overpriced but I would definitely go back again.

    The food, ambience and service are just 100% perfect! The pizzas are out of this world! In fact everything we ate was very high quality and we can't wait to return for a second visit! The waiter was really attentive and charming. I'd highly recommend this venue if you've never been before.

    Long lunch on a damp December day. Fabio was warm and hospitable and the food was great. A pity that so many people had cancelled. Will definitely visit again.

    The venue was clean and welcoming. The service was very good - however not many other diners so we had the waiter's, almost, sole attention. The olives were stoned - not so good. The steak was very good - The after meal liqueur was not so good - so overall pretty average. Would go again.

    Took mum for her birthday, had a lovely meal and the service was amazing. They were unable to do a gluten free pizza as they had run out of the flour but will be back to try soon.

    We visited here for the first time today. We were warmly greeted by Fabio who is an excellent host. The decor, tables and cleanliness were excellent and, most importantly, the food and service was outstanding. All locally sourced produce, cooked from scratch, and absolutely delicious. We couldn’t believe that the place wasn’t packed but it’s early days in a challenging time. They even offer an impressive cocktail list, mixed by Fabio’s wife. The espresso martinis knocked spots off of £22 cocktails in London and are priced at only £8.00! We cannot wait to return and try it out one evening. Keep doing what you do Fabio and the team! 👍

    Since re-opening after C19 & a refurbishment this is a must place to visit. The owner Fabio & his chef Daniel put so much pride into the service provided. The food is outstanding and the Chef can be seen cooking pizza’s / calzone from fresh. Please visit this little gem. Neil & Kim.

    Amazing dinner at Caesars last night. Great atmosphere and wonderful service with a warm welcome. So happy that they do a decent burrata and the rib eye is superb (especially the mushroom ketchup) 🤩 the specials looked amazing too, so looking forward to our next visit already! The food is exceptionally well priced, as is the alcohol and very well presented. Definitely raised the bar for other restaurants in the area, keep it up!

    Great food, fresh and delicious. Chef willing to change things to suit taste, a sign of a good chef, proving it’s made and cooked to order. Polite and helpful staff, service excellent. And very good prices. I hope they continue to flourish.

    Food & service outstanding. Have paid a lot more for a lot less in other places. Nice to have a healthy amount of food on the plate rather than it heaped as high as possible (which normally means you over eat or waste half of it). The food took me back to a trip to Rome - can’t wait to go again.
