All the food is freshly cooked and so tasty! Very friendly staff and the menu holds many dishes that we would not get in an Italian restaurant in England. Molto Bueno!

Nice ambience, good food, good wine, decent service. We enjoyed the meal a lot. Sprite for kids was overpriced at 5 bucks.

Very slow and disorganised service. Food average but overpriced. Most other tables around us also had problems with the service.

We enjoyed a very nice meal here. A good selection of Italian dishes, including very tasty pizza. Good drinks options too and the service was excellent. The waiter was really nice and very attentive.

We ate here after driving all day.. It was nice to sit down with good wine, good food and good service. It is a little pricey but worth it

Called in here on a cold, wet night this week. Very friendly and capable staff. We were well looked after and enjoyed an adequate but unimpressive meal. That said, it is a good venue for dinner.
