Very busy on a football night but the food was good and the service just about managed to keep up with the demand., it certainly ticked the box for a pre football meal and for that reason we will be back

Food was amazing, the atmosphere was lovely. But the service let them down - waiters were rude and had to ask for simple things more than once!0

The restaurant was surprisingly busy for a Tuesday evening, but the food and wine were excellent and the service was good, if a little slow at times. Had a thoroughly enjoyable evening overall.

Decent food- especially the pasta and bruschetta. The pizzas are too cheesy and the melanzane really lacked flavour

I’ve been a customer for years. It’s always good value and it is good to see Luigi and the other staff. The food is good and plentiful unlike other restaurants. Will recommend to anyone.

A kids party meant there was a lot of noise and the service was very poor. The food as always was great.

Food was good and fast which was good as we had a theatre trip. My friend had a gluten free pizza which he said was delicious, I had Papardelle Mama Teresa’ which was very nice but basically a carbonara. Couldn’t fault place or ambience and wound definitely go back except I had a very upset stomach for the next two days which can only have been from there as I’ve eaten / drunk nothing else out in weeks. I feel bad mentioning it but think it’s important!

Food was great but service was inattentive. Had tonwait for 10 minutes at the door despite having a reservation, there was no one in front of us the staff seemed to choose to ignore us. When someone finally came over, they told us that we'd need to speak to a different member of staff seeing as we'd booked. So we waited again. It wasn't until I got the attention of said staff member that we finally got seated - no one seemed to care or eant to help. Not very welcoming!

Relaxed & authentic Italian, albeit surprisingly busy/noisy for a Sunday evening!
Good food, relaxed service - lovely not to feel rushed.
Would go again but sadly live too far away.

Booked a table but was still waiting outside for over 20mins. Were seated and then nobody approached us for nearly 30mins! So we left. And nobody bothered or even seemed to notice! If you can't accommodate, don't take so many bookings. Very disappointed indeed

We pre-booked for two which we told the greeter but we were not asked for the booking name or anything. Instead, were led downstairs to a table for four where we struggled to get the waiters’ attention. We were literally waving insanely and they pretended not to see multiple times.

When we finally ordered, the food wasn’t as good as it had been in the past. So not worth the long drive or shoddy service.

This was one of our favourite Italian places to go to, but we 100% will not be returning after that whole ordeal.

Great Italian food. Some dishes could feed more than one person.
Great place for a nice dinner with family!
If you do not smoke sit far from the small balcony in the front. Can become an issue and the tasteful dishes might loose some of the flavor because of the smoke smell.
Other than that. Great place!

Food always very good. It gets rightly very busy on match days such as today and you can see the pressure on the team to get food served. Sometimes food doesn’t all come out together, for example when some have pizza and others have pasta, but given the circumstances, this is still always a good place to eat
