We were in Oxford for a fashion show at Pitt Rivers, needed food quickly and couldn't find anywhere to park. We had booked in advance and phoned to say that we were running late. When we arrived, the table had been held for us, the staff were understanding and made us very welcome. The food was great and delivered quickly.... More

My son and I both order half orders with a side salad , they only brought one half with salad and one regular. No worries all was fine. Dinner for two with wine for me and a coke for by son was 22 pounds.... More

The service was fantastic. The homemade lemonade was brilliant. The staff were friendly, polite, attentive and among the best. However for the price the food, whilst being a fair portion, and very tasty, was not the greatest. Like another reviewer, I had seafood and found it was very sparse compared to other establishments. I had the seafood risotto which was... More

Had a late afternoon meal here it was ok but I wont rush back. I had the Linguine Con Frutti di Mare the pasta was OK but there wasn't much and there was a distinct lack of seafood with it. My wife isn't a big eater and usually goes for a starter and even she commented on how little there... More

Me and my friends have had a wonderful experience in this restaurant. Food was amazing and delivered promptly. The ambience was nice and relaxed, just what we needed! I have had baked aubergines and the mushrooms as starter, followed by the pizza with gorgonzola as main. Everything very good! But what made our night so special was our waitress Giusy!... More

Three ladies, easy booking on line, well we had a lovely couple of hours, the choice was plentiful, we all had mains which were 10/10. Desserts ditto and lovely wine. We were served by Glenda whom we specifically asked her name so we could champion her. All the staff were so polite and could not do enough for us. Our... More

It is really difficult to fault this little restaurant. The staff were attentive and friendly to the customer and each other which was nice to see. The food was fantastic. My only slight grudge was the cleanliness of the floors, the stairs leading up to the toilets, and the toilets themselves. Although I have seen a lot worse. In general... More

Lovely staff, very attentive. Great asparagus & panchetta carbonara, and loved the cocktails. Thought 'the warm one' starter was a bit dry and not for me but everything else was great.
