The food was fine. But the waiter didn't know that through the tastecard, it's 50% off the food bill. So we didn't have to buy one meal to get the other free. We discussed this a little but he insisted. That spoiled the evening a bit.

Dined here a group of 7 of us arriving 7.30. There was a party going on downstairs but upstairs it was quiet but considering this we had a fair wait for drinks and food and were all starving. So service could have been better. Food was fine, not exceptional, l but I believe everyone was satisfied with it. As it was booked on tastecard at 50% off food it was great value. Not so great if paying full price.

Was expecting more from what looked like a traditional Italian restaurant. Starters were nice. Pizzas were homemade and OK but Lasagne very disappointing. We got 50% off with tastecard and it wasn't worth anymore than we paid. Also this is another place where 12.5% service is included in bill.

Nice little Italian, very good value as we used tastecard and received 50% off our food bill. If we had paid full price I am not sure the food would have been good value. Particularly enjoyed king prawn starter, burgers not as good as we have had elsewhere. Service a little slow, nice 60s 70s soundtrack which created a good ambiance.

Um, I'm not sure this place enjoys receiving taste card owners but I'm also not sure I would pay full price for the food received. A service charge of £5 was added to our bill which did make us laugh. We received our food with no queries around whether we'd like any sauces and no knives and forks. We therefore got up and scavenged for cutlery ourselves. The meals were removed with no query as to whether we wanted dessert. After finding the menu ourselves we decided we would like dessert only to be brushed off whenever we tried to order as other tables seemed to be more important. No queries as to whether we wanted anymore to drink. All in all laughable service and reasonable food in a cafe that needs quite a bit of renovation. Will not return.
