Had the meatballs as a starter, as they are always very nice, same could not be said for the cod dish, it was so salty it was inedible, shame really the wife loved both her dishes, I put it down as just bad luck on the night, waiter was very nice and apologetic about it, ask if I wanted another dish, but as the wife had nearly finished hers, seemed a bit pointless!

Lovely restaurant, food tasty and well presented. One recommendation, request seating downstairs as upstairs is very noisy making it difficult to hear conversation.

Food was excellent. The lady greeting us provided a mask which was appreciated as we were running late and left them at home. It's a shame lockdown had impacted the atmosphere but we will certainly return as we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Was ok except my friends 10 year old son was getting dropped off 3/4 of the way through the meal and wasn’t allowed to come and sit with us as we only had a table for 4 and he was then the 5. He had to stand outside in the street and she had to eat quick

Our meal was 'ok' but nothing special. The starter was luke warm and the main was alright but nothing startling. I must admit I expected better.

Felt rushed as soon as we arrived. We put that down to Covid restrictions and only having an hour and a half to eat a three course meal.

Gorgeous food. The only criticism is I had arancini to start and was served only piece! I do think this was to little! Everything tasted wonderful

This felt very covid safe. Very quiet a lovely meal. I think the pasta dishes at 13 pound are pricey however . Even if they are good
