    We've walked past on so many occasions it was about time we called in and a birthday dinner was the perfect excuse. A good selection of Italian wines and exquisitely cooked pasta - of course. A rather disappointing apple crumble for pudding (I should have gone for the canoli) but a very successful evening overall.

    Really disappointing. Had a great meal here on Wednesday. Took my family here on Saturday and was told half the menu wasn’t available. Then the food that came was really poor compared to what we had had earlier in the week, including the same dishes. Service was surly and sarcastic with the 3 guys on duty more interested in dancing to their 90’s R&B music than serving us. Eventually a female member of staff came on duty and things changed from a service perspective but not food. Super disappointing that a family Christmas meal can be ruined in a place with such charm and potential.

    Average service. Starter was good but mains were average for the price.

    Food was delicious, particularly the Scallops. Portions were very filling unfortunately didn’t leave any room for the tiramisu which is my favourite. Did however find the service below par, our server was a little rude and didn’t give us the full service that we normally receive (bread and olive oil, talk us through the different pastas or explain the menu to us). Other than that was very good

    I’ve been coming here for 6 years and it’s always great. Delicious food with a changing menu for the seasons. A good wine list. Friendly staff.

    I liked that was a warm place. Feel like home. Food was delicious. We asked two dishes and were incredible both. Wine was no bad. Even though from the first 3 on the list I tried two of them, trying to match what I usually like in a wine, but was no excellent as the food have to say. Probably the 50£ bottle is better but don’t think I will buy one.
