    The food was very good and the waiter polite but service was very slow. We were in the restaurant for 1 hour before we started eating and with 2 small hungry children to divert this was disappointing

  • (((** 5 September 2017 by Mark Johnson from Cambridge

    Dissapointed as there were only two people to serve the whole restaurant, this was made worse by a booking of 25!!!! We had a long wait for drinks and starters.
    I have on a number of occasions visited this restaurant but given my latest experience I am somewhat undecided as to whether to visit again

    Took 45minutes to get our drinks, people who arrived after us had their drinks before us. Food was ok but my husband had rewarmed ravioli.

  • (**** 30 May 2017 by Kevin from Cambridge

    The food was good and enjoyable but the service severly let this down. The restaurant was fairly quiet but we waited for what seemed an age to have our drinks and food orders taken. It was impossible to get a server's attention to get another drink. The only attention we seemed to receive was to be asked how our desserts were twice then we're left for around 30 minutes with empty dishes and glasses in front of us.

    Food much improved since previous visits to the chain. Wait staff were very friendly, if too few and overworked. The menu had been updated in the kitchen but not for customers, so we couldn't order what we wanted at first, which was disappointing.

  • ((((* 14 May 2017 by Tracy Charlton from Grimsby

    Was my birthday treat as we're not local in cambridge. We love this place. .never been to this venue was up to standard and service wasn't to long to wait, we did feel for the waitress who seems to doing 20 jobs at once, so lack of staff let it down but we phrase the Italian lady that served us.
