    Friendly staff, attractive location. My calves liver was excellent, the prawn and squid starters were a little bland. Overall the food was very good Italian style with a wide choice.

    The waiters were slow and didn't seem to pay much attention to the clientele in the restaurant (one was leaning with his back and crossed arms against the bar and didn't seem to care about various people waving their hands and trying to get their order in). We had to ask for the wine to be put cold and afterwards ask various times to get poured some more as the bottle was placed away from us. The food was not up to expectation, the tartar had almost no taste or spice to it and was not presented in an appetizing manner, the seefood risotto was much too wet and rice not cooked well. Overpriced for what it was. Also too noisy and tables too close together

    Pleasant but uninspired Atlantic cod accompanied by slow service and no 'etruscana' ambience. Maybe worth one more try?

    Very enjoyable experience - we were able to dine outside given the pleasant weather. Very nice food and excellent service

    We arrived at the lovely restaurant with the option to sit outside we sat near a big bin that smelt awful, so we asked to move and if it was a bin. The waitress didn't say anything just walked us over to another table where there was dirty cutlery that we changed ourselves. We were then only given one starter when we ordered 2 with no apology, the food was delicious but pasta mains have an added £4 surcharge if ordering as a main which makes the price above average. Being a vegetarian it brings the price up to a fish course which I think needs revisions to make the prices fair.
    It was a lovely environment after the bin and bogey cutlery incident but I don't think we're going to return
