Me and my family have been eating here for about 8 years now and I really do enjoy the experience most of the time but think I may have recently over done it. We attended recently in consecutive weeks, once with friends who booked and another with my parents for my dads birthday. The first week was faultless, from the... More

I agree with a previous review, how hard can it be to itemise the bill ? To be given a lump sum to pay with no breakdown is just wrong. Expensive mains with vegetables extra. Expensive poor quality wines. Large menu that would need lots of kitchen staff to be able to cook it all,which would indicate the kitchen is... More

Had a nice private ish table and as always the service was fantastic. And the food was superb, the starters we had eg the prawns and the calamari, great. I had been told about the calves liver, so i had it, absolutely fantastic, my partner had medallions of fillet steak which again was great. Will book again, definately.

Have eaten here a few times and for some reason never put a review that the restaurant deserves as never really had a bad meal. The food Is what I call proper Italian - Pastas, Skate Wing, steak etc. and we all had an enjoyable meal. Staff are smiley and friendly and will definitely be back soon.

Had a Sunday dinner at la cucina. When you walk in you will be greeted by friendly staff and nice surroundings. After we had our meal we was given our bill and that's where things go downhill. They won't list every item in your bill, they put prices on each section of your food. When we added this up we... More

Booked the table for 11 people no trouble, was a bit of a squeeze but was warned of that when i booked, we managed. The food was great and the service was just as good. The atmosphere was nice and not loud so we could hear what everyone on our table was saying. Price wise, very reasonable. 2nd time we... More

Spent New Year's eve here because previous visits have been excellent. However, on this occasion the food was lack lustre and the staff inconspicuous. The only highlight was the music which was great. Whilst it is understandable that a busy evening like this puts pressure on the staff, something was definitely missing, not just the usual Manager but also some... More
