The service was poor at best - the food was like it had been heated in a microwave. We waited an hour and a half for our main course to arrive. We will not be coming back - such a shame as it looked like it had real Italian charm

Been before and come back. That says some thing. Not cheap as prices have gone up but ok. Wine good. If required.

This restaurant has a nice relaxed atmosphere. Part of the way through our meal we heard a pianist playing which added to the atmosphere. I had a pizza for a change and this was very enjoyable. Plenty of topping. My wife and daughter had the risotto which they both thoroughly enjoyed. A nice restaurant serving good tasting Italian food.

We found it overpriced salty (very) microwaved food. Service was excellent though, and the piano playing was a nice touch. Won't be going here again. I can go to Sainsbury's and get a better meal out of the freezer. Sorry but that's how we felt.

My wife and I shared a GAMBERONI ALL` AGLIO starter. I had SPAGHETTI ALLA CARBONARA and my wife had the CRESPOLINA. Unusual for us we both had sweets. All the food was... More

Lovely food at a fab price, and a lady playing the piano. What more can you ask for after a busy day sight seeing before the theatre

Me and my friends ate there for dinner time and we enjoyed the food, specially the pasta and the pizza. We found the price more than reasonable and the staff were friendly. I have to add that the restroom was a bit messy.
