    Typical family restaurant with authentic Italian food and staff. Generous portions but the garlic bread is just pizza dough and not garlic fried off ciabatta

    As always a wonderfully relaxed and unfussy atmosphere. Food was wholesome and delicious without being pretentious. Service was equally welcoming. We love it there, don’t go too often but it’s always memorable. Martin and family

    I arrived before the rest of my party, was shown to my table and not offered any refreshment. I had to stop a passing waitress to ask for a drink. We shared a garlic bread to start and had to stop the waitress from taking it away with 2 pieces still left on the plate, which were definitely going to be eaten! The food was very good, as always. However after we finished dessert we were left with dirty plates on the table with staff walking past, looking at the plates but not taking them away. We paid the bill and left. We did not leave a gratuity as the service was poor. We probably won’t eat there again.

    Had phoned to ask about menus e.g. children's etc. Told yes they had these but this not produced or been offered one for our grandson. He had to accept a box to take half of his pizza away as a result of adult portion. The food good but were glad we had only one shared starter as the portion was huge Will maybe try again and see what the early bird menu is like for choice and lunch. Without grandchildren!

    We arrived expecting difficult parking but free on street parking was available a little way up the road after 1800 hrs. We walked down to the restaurant but decided to go for a drink in one of the very near by pubs first that was on the same street. The street was lovely and relaxing. We then went into the restaurant and was greeted by very friendly staff who quickly showed us to our table. The menu was extensive and it was not difficult to choose. Staff were excellent and very attentive all evening without us feeling rushed. Food was great. I had a chicken dish that was huge. My guest had a salmon dish that was smaller but she said was just the right size for her and delicious. We accompanied the meal with a fabulous salad. Wine choice was extensive. Would I go again despite it being an hour drive ... absolutely 👍
