The food was lovely and arrived promptly.
Only issue was that after our last plate was taken away, we seemed to be forgotten about and had to wait 45 minutes for the bill.

Good food, Great service, expensive wine!
((((( 29 July 2017 by Sharon from norwich
Service was very quick and the food was good. We took 3 children for a holiday treat and they had a lovely time.
((((( 26 July 2017 by Ben from wymondham
Excellent meal. First class service.

Very good meal. Excellent service from staff despite them possibly being a person or two short in numbers.
One tip for customers and the operator - given a choice, don't have the table near the service hatch since one of the chairs is badly affected by a poorly fitted floorboard which is on a main walk through for customers and staff. Only three of us were dining so a move to another chair was a quick remedy but if four people dining at the table, one person would be affected and soon get irritated.

We were sat next to the wall which backs onto the ladies toilets and could constantly hear the hand dryer (could have been worse I suppose). Person who seated us was a bit hasty and didn't even bother checking that we had actually booked a table, then didn't give us a chance to mention that we were using a groupon voucher and would therefore need a groupon menu.
The waiter who then came to serve us was very polite and gave us the right amount of time to choose and to speak. The food was lovely.

Sorry but the service was terrible. We waited an hour from ordering to receiving our food. People around us waited an hour & a half. It was a busy night & they were full but the place seemed to be in chaos. Once the food arrived it was tasty but I think that is because we were so hungry by then it didn't even touch the sides to taste it on the way down!

Service and food was great.
We were asked to vacate our table at the end because the restaurant was busy and the manager didn't actually thank us for doing so but our waitress was lovely.
Price was good but only because we had 50% voucher off main course, it would have ben over priced without this.

Dreadful service, table booked for 5pm, finally got sat down at 5.50, got food at 6.30 which was not Bella Italia standard at all.
