    Over priced Italian food with not much flavour. Definitely not worth the money. Very disappointed. Portion sizes were poor too. Drinks also expensive. The staff are friendly, just a shame the food wasn't great.

    We haven't been here for a while. Its always been good, one of the better franchised places around. Last night didn't disappoint, it was better than we remembered. The menu had improved too, both food and drinks. The staff were as friendly and welcoming as ever. Really good night.
