    We were pretty cold near the door. The food was good but the service was also very very chilly.

    Pasta not cooked properly.

    We like the informal ambiance, this time the risotto was superb very few restaurants get it right the hake with peas and lettuce perfectly cooked. Wine by carafe Grillo from Sicily machted it well. Service professional we will be back.

    the staff were welcoming and knowledgeable and looked after us very well. The food was excellent and amazing value; we had a combination of the three courses for £23 and a la carte menu. Wines can be rather on the pricey side but we had the basic white which was fine if ordinary. So much better than the myriad chains that offer mediocre 'Italian' food!

    Food quality excellent. Wine list a bit limited and expensive. Overall bill was steep when all the extras had been taken into account

  • ((((* 18 April 2016 by Colin Baxter from Salisbury

    Second time we have visited this restaurant for lunch. Menu choices were excellent. The aranci truffle balls and octopus starter were different and had wow factor. Both pasta dishes were better than expected. Service was excellent with right level of attentiveness. Wine list was good, but a bit pricey.

    Fab lunch - food, ambience and service spot on.

  • ((((( 9 September 2015 by Eric Diment from Welwyn

    A great experience from start to end with a buzzy atmosphere, friendly staff and great food. I would find it difficult to fault this restaurant from the well presented food, cooked perfectly with seasoning, taste and texture that was spot on. We started with some truffle infused arancini and a bottle of Franciacorta followed by bresaola and gnocchi before sampling some perfect pink lamb and monk fish with side dishes. Leave room for the desserts as our choices included figs, semifreddo startiocello and a shared plate of Italian cheeses.
