Wonderful little Italian - amazing food, great staff. Our New Years Eve meal was cancelled due to Covid restrictions at the last minute so they converted our booking to a takeaway - saved our new year, thank you so much!

We sat in the heated outdoor bit, and was so comfortable, we were warm and it was ventilated, the service was brilliant and in no way did we feel uncomfortable due to COVID restrictions as everything was so well run! The food was delicious and lots of variety to choose from. Will definitely be back as soon as possible

Came here for breakfast, and we both went for the full English each. Good value for money, so much so that I couldn't finish mine and my husband ended up with 1½ breakfasts'! The quality of products used was evident; very tasty. The service here is excellent, very efficient and friendly. We felt safe with all the hand sanitisers available, not only on entry, but on the table and even in the toilets. Dettol spray is also made available for you to spray amenities before use. Love visiting here, such a nice ambience having tried breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Arrived on time but table wasn’t ready , so stood for quite a while, put drinks and wine order in but that took an absolute age to arrive, we had to ask twice, meal was great and we will certainly return and hopefully they will have someone just dealing with wine orders.

Very friendly and cosy environment. Plenty of choice in the menu and a great drinks selection. We ate inside but the outside option looked good too even on a very cold wet night as well protected and warm. Thoroughly recommend.

Lovely lunch. Food of good quality and quantity. Service excellent - all served with a friendly smile. Felt very safe during current situation, and tables/chairs etc. cleaned after every customer. Such a shame we are heading into lockdown again, but look forward to our next visit in December - everything crossed.
