The service was attentive. Our starter were mozarella, which was well presented and calamaris deep fried. The deep fry was under done. For mains we had ordered the seabass. Regretfully the skin was not crisps and the fish had been drowned with a tomatoe sauce, which tasted like a carton of tomatoe puree. The spaghetti with prawns was acceptable but far too much pasta. We also ordered a tomatoe salad which consisted of onions roughly cut and thickly sliced tomatoes. What I had hoped for was thinly sliced and cubbed onions mixed with equally thinly sliced tomstoes with a hint of basil. We did not stay for coffee and dessert. We had white wine with our starter which tasted as if it had been watered down. I than ordered a house red with my main which was served in a white wine glass. The restaurant could be perfect if these areas could be addressed.

We telephoned in the week to confirm that they were open all day on a Saturday - however when we arrived around 15.00 the restaurant sign was showing 'closed' and when the waiter checked with the kitchen the restaurant was closed.

Obviously can't depend on the restaurant - probably wouldn't try again, especially as we had a special impromptu celebration going on ...
