Was given a groupon voucher as a gift so gave the place a shot . Drove passed a great looking place along the road but sadly wasn't the same place we ended up. Walked in through a dodgy red curtain , the Decor was stuck in the 80's , wall heater on full blast so much you could hardly breath.... More

Loved the food fresh and nice. Chicken was very succulent and moist. We didn't like the attitude of the lady who served us very rude, abrupt and arrogant.Hence the rating for it's not all about food you serve but service as well. Lorenzo was very accommodating.

We visited last year, wasn't good then ,we thought 'give it another go', a year on as it used to be a really nice restaurant. I think the main was cooked with the starter and kept warm.

Very rude and unpleasant owner/chef couldn't cook my fillet medium rare the first came well done second came medium well. On the second time saying my fillet of beef was over cooked to be told I was wrong and that he cooked it correct. It's such a shame we came to this place 2 years ago and had a fantastic... More

Wonderful roasted artichoke, brilliant roast pepper, great pasta chef's special, perfect gorgonzola chicken & perfect garlic bread. All washed down with a very good bottle of Valpolicella. I don't know how they do it at the price excellent value for money. We will be back.

The decor is dated but it is clean and presentable. The food was delicious. Mussels in white wine was good, a few broken shells added some grittiness near the end but aside from that it was tasty. Lasagne was also so very tasty I thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was 5 star, attentive, polite and friendly.

Thank Miss C
