Hidden away in an estate we went for a family celebration. Great service and different pastas and starters to other Italians. We were recommended to have the fillet steak and they were all perfectly cooked to different orders. We shared chips and vegetables. For starters we had a mix of pate stuffed mushrooms, Parma ham and goats cheese, potatoes skins-... More

I've been twice before, this visit was particularly enjoyable. Scallops to start and wild boar ravioli, both excellent. The staff were welcoming, friendly and professional. Great value for money. Best place I've eaten for a good while.

Visited here Wednesday night for a birthday celebration. Starter of calamari was possibly the worst I've ever had and sent it back. I was offered an alternative or another portion but declined. We were told it would be taken off the bill. My main course of Stroganoff was okay with rice but again nothing special. My wife had sea bass... More

We were all served within a very respectable time. As usual the staff were very attentive and Pascal was working hard with his staff as well as checking that everything was running smoothly. Hands...

We've only used this Italian restaurant a couple of times before but everything has always been good. The whole family were eating out although it was just a quick meal. The adults didn't have a start but the children shared potato skins. These were cooked so well that I might order them next time and this would be a first... More
