We picked this place out from trip advisor and we're not disappointed. The food was delicious, the atmosphere great and the service friendly. Would visit again.

As usual it was very busy and quite noisy with some larger groups deciding that shouting was the order of the day. We were as far away from them as possible so that helped a little. We starter with the soup - excellent .... the cabrese salad was good as well. Mussels , fresh turbot and the monkfish were our... More

Went with a friend of mine for an early dinner ahead of a rugby match in Leicester. by 6.05pm the restaurant was full with rugby supporters having a meal. Despite the influx of over sixty people we had our orders taken in under five minutes and without being rushed we were out of the restaurant in 75 minutes. Excellent Lasagne... More

I booked a table for two, for my wife and myself 2 weeks in advance, I had read the reviews for this place and thought it would be a great treat for us both. On arrival we had to wait 30 minutes for our table then we were lead to a small pokey table very close to the kitchen and... More

Old and tired little back street restaurant (they call it rustic!!!). Very poor choice of drinks from the tiny bar literally in front of the main door (inadequate comfortable waiting room whilst having a pre drink before dinner ~ not relaxing or enjoyable). The Pinot Grigio at £18 a bottle was not a good quality wine. I ordered grilled chicken... More

The first time I've ever been to a resaurant with no name over the door and as it's in a quiet back street, it took some finding, although the map from the web site was very helpful. the restaurant was quiet, which is probably not unusual for a January mid-week lunch. The staff were friendly and attentive and quick to... More

The place is very cosy. The ground floor has a better atmosphere, than upstairs. The food was delicious. I had a monkfish and it was very special. Also, they have a nice selection of Italian wines and cocktails. But! The place is always busy and we were rushed all the time . "Choose your food quickly!" "Eat quicker!" ...etc We... More

Step through the unmarked green door to a friendly and professional greeting. From the moment we entered to the moment we left, the staff were attentive and efficient. The food was lovely; simple but expertly cooked and very, very tasty. Only down side is that when busy, can feel cramped and is very loud.

Came to this restaurant on a recommendation. My mum has walked by this place countless times but never knew it was a restaurant until a friend told us about it. Small little place, not a lot of room to move but it was still nice. It's very popular, many customers were there when we arrived and lots were waiting when... More
