Helpful staff, speedy service, lovely choice of Italian food, a perfect early evening meal before we went to the theatre. Was getting busy as we left so it is advisable to book.

Despite it being only 6pm in a Saturday the restaurant was busy with a nice vibe Our waiter was attentive and even suggested we tasted two of their red wines before deciding... More

You know what you are getting with this Italian chain, and this one did not disappoint. The staff were friendly & attentive. The food was well cooked and we all had a good night, made better when we discovered there was a special offer on!

We had a shared platter of some cold meats, focaccia and a couple of coffees. All were very nice and the staff very good, it was just what we wanted, nothing too much, but very tasty, we... More

We had booked a table on the web which was easy enough. The staff were very helpful and efficient. The menu was varied. The service was good and the food was hot. Prices were reasonable. We had a good meal and we would be happy to eat here again.

Decided to go tonight because of their deal buy a main course and get another for a £1. There meals are normally fairly pricey so this was a decent deal and a reason to... More

Rang at short notice for a table for five. Very well received by the staff and food was really well prepared, presented and enjoyed by us all. Two Brasilian nationals went away with panettoni to take back to Brasil; it is their Christmas cake out there. Thank you.

Walk in group of 4 for Lunch / early Dinner. That was our 1st mistake, not doing sufficient Trip Advisor research, booking and opting for a location that appeared to be ok. As we entered there were several diners, place looked promising. Table for 4 is not a problem, we look and order from the set menu, by now the... More

Corporate greed spoils event for all. Pre-ordered lunch for small group took 3 hours (yes, three). When you realise you're full to capacity and can't cope STOP TAKING BOOKINGS!
