Had a meal with friends here on 20th May to celebrate my 70th birthday the next day. They had dressed the table for me and we had excellent service and the meal was really lovely

Popped here for a quick supper whilst away with work. The food was absolutely amazing - the biggest freshwater king prawns on fresh linguine with a tomatoey sauce. Delicious side salad too, packed full of cucumber and peppers as well as leaves. Huge portions too...More

Ate here twice whilst staying at Hilton nearby . Nice to find a reasonably priced restaurant which isn't part of a chain. Nice friendly atmosphere. Staff cheerful and helpful (not an Italian in sight though). Had pizza one visit and next time particularly enjoyed the...More

A very rare visit to Bristol for my OH birthday. We were only staying at the hotel nearby and didn't want to wander around the harbour area with the stag and hen crowd looking for a restaurant. Found some good reviews on Trip and thought...More

We meet here all the time near the station. The food is very good, and they are willing do what you ask for even if it's a bit different from the menu items - I would give them 5 stars if they had a changing...More

It was good we booked as the restaurant quickly filled up. Yes the decor is old fashioned, but added to the ambience. There was a delightful aroma as we walked in and all the staff were friendly, attentive and cheerful. Excellent meal, beautifully cooked and...More

We were two couples from different parts of the country, meeting in the middle for a weekend catch-up. The restaurant is clean and tidy, the meal was great value and the service was excellent. It's nice to go to an independent Italian restaurant where there...More

Stuart, I don't know you. I only read your review. From what I read I gathered by your own words that your wife was rude because she didn't like the wine. Then she didn't like the food and then you both decided to not like the staff. You can't please all the people all the time and I'm really sorry you both had a negative experience. I had a fabulous meal, friendly staff and really enjoy dark full bodied wine. Each to their own! What are you going to do? If I were you I would try a different cuisine and maybe stick to beer.

Please ask Stuart C and his rude wife back. It could be a sell out evening's entertainment! I love your so polite reply. See you again soon, keep up the good work.

Other people's stupidity does make for fine entertainment so long as it doesn't backfire. No use in poking dead things with sticks. May as well keep the table free for the clientele who possess manners, (me.)
