This restaurant serves the best pasta that I have ever eaten and the staff do it with a smile - albeit service itself may be rather slow on occasion. When we were last here I had the spaghetti carbonara and my partner had the chicken, both equally good and such large helpings that we had to have a doggy bag (in fact a rather dainty box!). Space is limited and the restaurant is obviously popular so it can be a bit hot and noisy. We think that is a fairly small price too pay for the wonderful food.

Staff dismissive when we arrived - a smile is always welcoming. My food was very peppery and left an unpleasant greasy taste in the mouth. Tiny portions of vegetables and frozen wedges passed off as sauté potatoes. The spaghetti accompanying the veal looked as though it had been put on the plate straight from a tin.

The pudding menu reminded me of something out of a Wimpy bar with stock photographs of the puddings - would have been much better typed out in the same way as the main menu.

The main restaurant area appeared to be very noisy and I am not sure the TVs were necessary just some beautiful artwork would suffice.

The whole place needs a spit and polish to justify its prices. Decor is dated, toilets shabby and very strange swing doors to access them. The railings over the entrance bridge are rotten and held together by tape and the pots gave more weeds than plants - a shame as could be very pretty in the evening.

Such a shame as could be fantastic. Having said all of the above I would revisit picking different food as so many others rave about it.

Lovely little place, love the bridge at the entrance. Welcomed at a nice little booth almost like a hotel which was a nice touch. Nice atmosphere and staff very friendly and went beyond expected which was so nice. Food was great, really tasty handmade pizzas. Will visit again. Thankyou.

This used to be on our list of places to eat but we went last week and it's well and truly off the list now.
As a couple we were sat away from the main room in a kind of corridor, so that's a zero for ambience.
Everything on the table was filthy, salt, pepper, candle holder etc just plastered with greasy fingerprints, and the window we sat beside was so dirty you could hardly see out. If front of house is filthy what are we to assume about the kitchen?
The single highlight were the staff - polite, efficient and friendly service.
But the defining feature was the food. Overcooked pasta swamped in a tasteless mush sauce. Seafood risotto no better. I've had better school dinners. You couldn't pay me to repeat that meal.
