Came here on the recommendation of a local on our first visit to Reading. Pleasant modern dining room with good food and wine, the Sauvignon blanc was especially good but unfortunately my meatballs tasted "frozen ", otherwise very good with professional waiters.

The waitstaff were friendlier than we expected (looked a bit stuffy from the outside). Food was slightly better than an average Italian restaurant but not anything special relative to Italian fine dining.
