Had made a booking for 7pm arrived at 6.45 pm. Service was great, floor manager came around twice to ask us if everything was okay and up to standard. Our waiter also popped around twice. We had the Fetechini Alfredo which tasted delicious and was a good portion of food. We were out by 7.40 pm after a couple of... More

I visited this establishment with friends as we were catching a show at the Grand Arena. Service was very slow and we had to wait for an hour for food to arrive. My lamb was not seasoned and my side salad was drenched in some cheap, store bought excuse of a dressing. No olive oil or balsamic set foot on... More

We chose a cold evening to visit when most people were not out & about. Seeing only chain restaurants at the casino complex we chose this Italian restaurant purely due to it being not part of a chain/franchise. Service was not overly attentive, orders were slow to arrive. We choose the winter set menu which was good value for money.... More

The place is a mix of fake, cheap and kitch Italian decor. The food is so so at best especially if you are amateur of traditional Italian food. The service is ok. I really cannot recommend the place but the problem is that inside Grand West there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of better restaurants.

I took my parents for an early lunch, arrived at 12 noon no other patrons. Immediately gave our drinks order for 4 coffees and 10 minutes later 12:10 gave our food order. 3 out of 4 coffees arrived. No apologies for a mistake but agreed to bring a 4th. This was to arrive 20 minutes later. After waiting 1 hour... More

We picked this lovely Italian restaurant to test our first voucher (buy one main and get one free) from my new 'The Entertainer' voucher book. What a great experience, the food was delicious and the service was exceptional, with really friendly and helpful staff. Even the manager on duty made his rounds at the tables (you don’t see that everywhere... More

I am not going to say that this is one of the best places I have been but the food was good, staff very helpful and friendly. Drinks and food reasonably priced for the casino, my partner had a steak and was happy with it and could not fault my pasta. I would recommend this place if you are not... More

We were at Grand West and was just looking for something to eat - so no special occasion. The service was very slow, waited quite a bit to get a table, and also took a long time before waiter came to get our order and to bring drinks. I have no complaints about the food, but we only had a... More
