I went to this restaurant with a couple of friends for the first time. We all had a starter, main course (steak), and dessert plus drinks. What a lovely atmosphere! The owners were friendly and welcoming. The food and service was superb I will definitely be returning here

Recent birthday party food was fabulous with lots of changes as fussy eaters- couldn't be more accommodating and the food was homemade ,authentic and fresh. Football shirts everywhere not sure why but made it a little different- highly recommend the venue everyone was friendly even the other customers - ps chocolate cake for pudding worth the lifetime on the hips!...

We visited this restaurant this evening as all other Italian restaurants in the area were fully booked. On arrival we had a very warm welcome and service by two English ladies. Unfortunately the food was far below standard. There was no freshness to any of our meals. Brushetta was french bagette with pizza sauce and cheese on top! Would it... More

By far the friendliest Italian restaurant this side of the Alps. Ann and her girls always make everyone feel at home. Lorenzo usually chained to the oven. Mainly older couples and families rather than the foreign students who throng the pavements outside but cannot see in so don't enter. Difficult to see in because of the décor - football shirts...

Down to earth friendly service. Good selection of food and Anne was happy to answer my questions and make a small modification. Food was excellent, all natural ingredient and home-made. Setting is charming and if you like football a 'must visit' due to the large collection of football shirts on display. We went on a Thursday and although the venue... More

Went here last night and ordered Olive Anchovy and Tuna Salad. It was a tin of tuna put on a plate with all the other ingredients. A Tuna Steak would have been brilliant. The other food was we ordered was OK. The staff were very attentive and very friendly. Unfortunately, we will not be going again.
