Our meal was excellent, service with a smile, the only oddity was the online booking system, wanted a table for 6.15pm online booking said all tables were full, we arrived early for our 6.30 table and the place was almost empty!

Not sure if our experience was due to the fact that we were a (possibly the only?) young family with an excited toddler eating there, among mostly tight-lipped, suited folk. Not that it should make any difference. Anyway, we ordered two lots of the Piccolo...More
