I went to Monte Cassino on a Sunday night during a time when I was away for a few days to recharge. The gentleman who welcomed me at the front door was lovely, he showed me to my table and brought me a menu, he was attentive and polite. I didn't feel strange sitting on my own and in fact... More

Been here before, never had a problem, food has always been great. As usual staff, restaurant etc all very nice. Tonight however we ordered a risotto which was fine, and veal in mushroom & cream sauce which was completely tasteless, no seasoning & veal was wafer thin strips. We told the waiting staff that the risotto was lovely but that... More

We had a meal here whilst staying nearby. The food was very good and tasty with generous helpings. The service was quick and attentive. The actual restaurant is set within an old building but it keeps its ambience and character. All in all a very fine eatery.

We visited here while staying at a hotel not too far away. It was quiet which suited us. I ordered spaghetti carbonara and my partner ordered a pizza, both meals were lovely. We both had a crepe filled with nutella, cream, bananas and strawberries afterwards which were amazing! Really reasonably priced too, about £35 for two main courses, 2 puddings... More

There was a large party of 26 of us, food was excellent and all served hot at the same time. Service was very good and overall the price was not unreasonable for the evening.

Visited here on Saturday night 29/10/16. It is set in an old railway station and the interior is passionately Italian. The welcome was excellent and the service overall was outstanding. Having read other comments on trip advisor I would say that the restaurant was warm and welcoming. The food was incredible and we (family of 4) had a mix of... More

Just back from a visit to this restaurant. The reason we chose it was my wife many many years ago had come on a staff night out. And had been excellent However we visited tonight we were not impressed. Yes in hindsight we should have complained but However my wife is a chef and I cringe if she does complain.... More

Sir, I noticed you travelled from edinburgh. You are lucky to live in a city with so many restaurants, what i would recommend is to eat somewhere in edinburgh instead of travelling so far to pay for overpriced garlic bread and drinks, or as your partner is a chef im sure she could cook you a nice meal. Had you... More

We booked a table for 9 including three children for Sunday lunch. Table was nicely set out into a bay window. Everything looked nice except it was cold! We asked the waitress if she could put some heat on. She replied that there was a fan heater in the ceiling above our table and she had just switched it on.... More
