Staff attitude was not that good. Decoration was good. The quality of ingredients was very low. They do not use fresh ingredients and use caned mushroom! Recipe was not Italian at all! They use microwave to serve soups!! They do not even have Italian wine!...More

Went here last night with friends. We have been before, but our friends hadn’t. Superb food, wine and excellent service. The waiter was exceptional, and recommended dishes for our taste, particularly as I don’t eat cheese. Would highly recommend. Thank you
