    I booked a table for my daughter and myself planning to pay with my Tastecard. The premises is attractive and I looked forward to our date very much. Unfortunately I found the service not particularly friendly although everything happened. Further having booked a table the night before for 2, on the day unexpectedly my little grandson joined us. The whole idea was to have a treat affordable because of the Tastecard. When it came to paying, as I visit Taunton a lot and have friends there, I thought it might have been helpful if the waiter had suggested the child meal be paid for separately so that I could take advantage of the Tastecard for the second adult meal. I think this would have been sensible and encouraged further business! What I had intended to cost no more than approximately £17-18.00 came to a great deal more! First presented with a bill for somewhere in the region of £32.00 this was then reduced to £26.00 after the child meal had been counted as a Tastecard meal. I realise the cheapest meal is usually applied, but in this case where the booking had been for two, I felt it would have been a smart move to encourage the use of the Tastecard for the adult meal and I would have been very impressed. I did not challenge this, but afterwards felt a little friendlier service and initiative used by the member of staff concerned would have been good especially as my guest is local and very sociable! The food itself was very good.

    It was a really nice experience. An interesting building, tables nicely laid, friendly and helpful service and a good menu which reaches beyond the usual basic Italian.

    Food was good, the waitress was very pleasant but our table for two was in a cramped corner by a birthday party table. It was very noisy and at times we had to ask for service. The espresso ice cream came without espresso ? What was meant to be a rare quiet meal out was anything but which was disappointing.

    Lovely meal. Great service from Maria who made our experience better she was polite helpful and fun.

    Huge portions - we asked for smaller portions but apparently this is not possible because of portion control. Food underseasoned if at all. Gin and tonic very weak as tumbler was filled to the brim with tonic instead of bringing it separately. All very disappointing. The room was very cold.
