Good food and good wine with a good environment that leads to a good time. Been there on several occasions either for business lunch,dinner or romantic dinner with my wife and I loved it in every occasion. Service is good and everybody looks after you from the boss till the waiter.maybe some prices are a bit more than my liking but with some special menus you can also have something cheaper.

terrible place. Gaudy interior, terrible service (ignored for 30 mins), over priced. Was so bad we left without eating, and based on what i read below, we missed out on a bland over priced meal. The good news is that it closed yesterday (March 4, 2013) - however the owner is promising (threatening??) to open a new restaurant....

Tried this restaurant for the first time this week using a Groupon voucher.
Pleasant outside terrace area which I imagine would be nice in summer, but not on the February night we visited. The service was a little slow considering it was nowhere near full, but not so slow as to be a problem.
Starters were good - carpaccio with rocket and parmesan, and prawn with avocado.
For mains we had pizza and ravioli, both of them were acceptable without being brilliant - often wonder if Groupon meals are at the same standard as full price? Drinks cost about the same as any other Italian restaurant, but Prossecco at £7 per glass was excessive.
Overall,the staff were not particularly friendly, and it was quite chilly in certain areas. With the Groupon it was very good value, but with no voucher it would not be a cheap night out.

Visited recently with a friend on a Groupon deal. The restaurant was only half full therefore I was surprised we were asked to sit at the bar. Approx. 40 minutes later, after we had been clearly ignored, the barmaid asked if we wanted to sit at the table.
The waiter completely ignored us throughout the evening and we had to ask if we could place an order, have a drink (which we then had to remind the staff about 15 minutes later), and for the bill (which was only sorted out when I had had enough and started to put my coat on to leave).
Food was okay, however the prawn, mussel and calamari risotto came without a single prawn?!
I will never return to this restaurant again due to rudeness of the waiter.
