We booked to eat here because we like the food, particularly the Tiramisu. But we found that the restaurant was really noisy and the waiter did nothing but complain about his manager . We ate our main course and left. We will not be going back.

Service of food was very very slow and squid rings in pasta meal wasn't edible, very rubbery. Also when i called the restaurant to make a special request, the phone wasn't answered. I tried for 2 days.

Lovely Italian alternative to afternoon tea. Would highly recommend. Everything was delicious! Lakeside branch, however, did not have a table ready for us and then we waited over 15 mins for food. Had to ask for more tea as we were not asked at any time if we would like a refresh.

The lady that served us was so rude! I had the afternoon tea it seemed as though the food was frozen and heated up in a microwave. We kept getting death stares by this one lady and she didn’t check up on us. Will not be going there again...

The restaurant was clearly popular we got there 10 minutes early and got our table near the centre of the restaurant however service wasn't great we ended up only having one of the two courses as we didn't want to wait around for service drink orders were taken as soon as we sat down 15 minutes went by than the main was taken than when we finished our meal we waited half an hour for our plates to be cleared and not once did someone come and check if everything was ok with our meals
