  •   Visited this lovely restaurant for lunch. Great service, very reasonable prices (Lunch £7.95), and FANTASTIC food. I love Italian food and this was probably the best Italian food I've eaten in the UK. I only live 10 miles away and I'm looking forward to visiting...More

      We had the Antipasto Rustico and Polpette di Melanzane for starters, both of which were beautifully presented and delicious (particularly the Polpette di Melanzane). For mains, we had the Lasagna Nonna Gianna (not sure I have tasted a better Lasagna outside of Italy) and Cioppino...More

Their reactive / responsive question clearly acknowledges little or no understanding of the polite initial query; for otherwise on arrival I should surely state that...More
