We celebrated a special birthday here and had a lovely evening. The food we had was great but I have awarded 4* because of the portion sizes. The sizes were on the small size especially the lasagne it really was a very small portion even for an 80 year old petite lady, she would have liked more. The desserts were homemade and 5*. The staff very friendly and attentive. Regards atmosphere it would have been great to have music in the background all evening.

Food was beautifully prepared. Service was beyond friendly. Great value for the money. If you like spicy, order the Penne Alla Romana, ask for extra spicy on the side – absolutely brilliant. Don't forget to seal the meal with a grappa.

Words cannot describe the spectacular food I had this evening. I spent a while trying to decide what to have, then I stumbled upon the crayfish spaghetti dish. I was not disappointed. It was glorious. I then asked which wine would be best paired with the dish, and again, I was not disappointed in the slightest. My partner also really enjoyed his meal. The whole experience was exquisite. I thoroughly enjoyed myself as the food was beautiful and the staff were so lovely and seemed to be passionate about Italian cooking. 100% recommend!!
