We went here on a Thursday evening about 6pm. Our starters were prawn cocktail and whitebait. Our mains were chicken a la Pepe tagliatelle Casanova (beef steak strips in a tomato and sweet pepper sauce). All of the dishes were of a decent size and tasted good and the dishes that were cooked came nice and hot. For dessert we... More

The staff are so friendly and the owner remembers your name after a couple of times visiting. Early bird menu 5-7pm is brilliant, around £14 for 3 courses. Try the king prawns!

I was with a large family party of 18 eating the tribute menu, but not when an act was on. It may be that the cheap menu and large party was to blame, but there were many problems with the quality of the food and service. The waiter tried to add up our starter order three times, and even then,... More

Well worth a visit with good quality proper Italian food cooked and served well and all for a very fair price. The seafood pasta is excellent as is the Cannelloni. Will be visiting again.

This was our first visit here and will not be the last. Me and two friends came for a birthday meal and the food was excellent. The staff made us very welcome and couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely be coming back, might even try one of their tribute nights.

This place has been around for years but this was our first visit. It's pleasant enough but there are certainly better Italian restaurants in the area at similar prices. Staff and service were fine but the drinks are pricey and the cocktails not very good. The menu is fairly extensive but there's nothing really out of the ordinary on there... More
