    Left waiting a long time for a table by the door despite the fact that we'd 'booked.' Had to ask for a jug of water, as is so common in restaurants these days, at least twice. Some enjoyed their pizzas & they looked good, others found them a bit bland, service was so slow that one friend had to leave half their main course to get to work on time. Definitely got ignored once when tried to call a waiter over.

    Friendly, welcoming staff.
    Food was exemplary - well done the chefs. Good value. Merlot was just right - taste and temperature.
