5/5! What an excellent place! The food was delicious. I really liked the décor and ambience. There was theatre too when parmesan was added to a dish - it involves setting alcohol alight over a large piece of parmesan, pouring the spaghetti and sauce into the melting cheese, then mixing and scraping the pasta back onto the dish. There was a nice touch with projecting Italian films onto the back wall. For us it was Godfather II . The staff were so lovely too. Overall, a very very enjoyable evening and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone! Buon appetito!

Although the food was outstanding our waiter made the experience so bad that I would never return and would not refer anyone here until I was certain this particular waiter was fired. He was so inattentive that it ruined the wonderful work of the chef. I would include his name, however he didn’t provide it. He was too busy hanging with the locals and the other waiters (who appeared to be quite capable).

Great buzz in this restaurant. Excellent food with decent sized portions. Calamare and prawns starter was big enough for a main course. Reasonable prices.

The restaurant is very neo Italian pretty. They had old Italian movies playing on the wall and the dining area was arranged theater style. We arrived right when the restaurant opened.

The food was great and the service was good. We

Our quirky waiter was friendly and entertaining, and our 4 entrees and sides were all excellent. The portions are quite large, so the prices are an excellent value. We were there on a slow night (only about 25% of the tables were occupied), so the restaurant was very quiet and easily allowed pleasant dinner conversation.

the overall experience was good. We were a party of 5. while 4 of us got their meals on time.....one of the persons at our table had to wait...we all were done with our meals that is just when she got her meals...that was really not so good. the waiter did not give a really apology or maybe a free drink ;-(

Perfect for a business meal for a large group. The food was great, the atmosphere and quirkiness of the venue was enough to appeal to all tastes. Gianni's son as head waiter looked after us very well. Thank you.

Un resto Italiennde quartier. Décor un peu sombre et kitch avec des vieux films jouant sur écran géant.
La bouffe est bonne avec ingrédients de qualité. Manque un peu de punch. Bons choix de vins.

We had a party of 20 that grew to a party of 30 and while the restaurant was quiet when we got there, they were very accomodating. It was a slow start, but once the food started coming everyone was thrilled with the selections and the quality. Great pick for a large group.
Thanks
