We booked via Quandoo and it said outside table so I contacted the restaurant and asked if it could be inside. I was told ‘no problem’. When we arrived we were told it was full and told outside or nothing. It started to get cold and so I asked again to go inside. ‘No problem’ was the reply, just have your starter outside and then move inside. We were eventually asked inside and there were lots of free tables but none had been cleared. There were lots of other people with the same complaint as us. However, the food was excellent. In my opinion the front of house is understaffed and consequently chaotic. What a shame as they produce very tasty food

We had a family meal here on the bank holiday weekend. We all loved our meals here which really made us feel like we were in Italy! It was a sunny evening so we sat outside. The service was great and we were made to feel very welcome. The only negative I would say is that the portion sizes seemed a little small but otherwise it was fantastic.

Food was very nice however we were charged almost 3 pounds for 2 slices of toasted bread cut in 4 pieces, when you order a full complete meal you expect or 2 slices of bread don’t be charged or for 3 pounds have a little more, bit disappointing I would not go back. We enjoyed the food anyway

Excellent little Italian, traditional Italian menu, fantastic host, nothing was too much trouble, even the chef came out to deliver my main course as I’d had one of their delicious specials, thoroughly recommend
