Friendly efficient service, cheap food and a good happy hour menu. Can't really go wrong for a standard Italian.

The food was lovely as always. We came on a busy night. All the waitresses were very attentive and doing their best to look after us. We ordered our starters and main together. We waited around 15 minutes for our starter plates to be cleared away and half an hour later our main was still not there. We were spoken... More
