Booked for 7:45pm waited in the vestibule till 8:10pm. Ordered rib-eye steak medium/rare with peppercorn sauce (well marbled on the menu), chips & roast veg. Arrived well done at 9:11pm, 7mm thick with zero marbling like a slice of meat from Tesco with chips (frozen McCain chips would been better) & potatos in a tomato sauce I didn't order, a... More

i have visited her a few times now. I normally have a started main course and a wine and it's average cost is about £23, The food has always been fantastic and the service is very good. Despite always being busy you don't have to wait long for your food. The only downside I think is the portions are huge... More

This isn't a criticism of the place: they were very helpful in giving us a spot on a busy Saturday lunchtime! However, we were slightly unlucky without our main waiting staff, who it seemed perhaps had had a bad day. The food, however, was very filling and did the job having just come out of the station on a wet... More

Great place to visit for quality Italian food. Book to ensure that you can get a seat. Does excellent lunch menu as well as having a full a la carte menu. Only down side is it can get a bit cramped.

Bustling restaurant, friendly staff and good food. Wine was reasonably priced. We ate downstairs and it was a bit cramped but otherwise a lovely experience.

One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever ate at. We booked our table and we're tended to as soon as we walked in the door. Waiters were so lovely and happy to serve you, place was overflowing with people. It's nice to see such a busy place with an amazing view. Overall, would definitely recommend!!

The staff are very friendly and welcoming and could not be more helpful or attentive.... More

Popped in for morning coffee and cake when a friend came through from North Berwick for a shopping day with me in Gladgow. Once again terrible, surly, rude, miserable service. My partner had taken me here a few months ago for breakfast, we were so astonished at the total lack of service that day that we didn't stay. I believe... More
