    Really enjoyed our pre theatre meal. We didn't have long but had a very good meal. 3 of us had the house special ravioli with mushroom and black truffle which was delicious. Great location. Great service.

    Did not order starter and main course arrived very quickly - and neither were hot. The lasagne with meat was sent back, when it returned as if should be - hot and boiling. My veggie pizza was edible, but not as good as it could have been because it was barely warm at first and cold long before I'd finished. I had a chocolate melt for desert, which was very nice. I would not have ordered it with the ice cream as per the menu, but they gave me cream which was much better. The waiters and waitresses were very good, but the cold food really put us off.
