Called in with some friends after seeing a movie. The place was buzzing but they fitted us in without a reservation as luckily a table for four had just left. The staff were brilliant, efficient, friendly with that cheeky banter. Food wise there was a...More

Called in for a quick dinner before attending a concert at The leadmill. First visit to this restaurant and definitely won’t be the last. The food was great I could barely finish my cannelloni which was really good.

Visited the restaurant without a reservation and was immediately found a table. The food was served quickly and was delicious. Service was fantastic. Will definitely be back

Erm...what can I say. The food is not fresh, microwaved within an inch of its processed life and about as Italian as a Barnsley chop. Individual staff members are friendly & others not so. The 5 star reviews are either false or the authors have...More

As always a friendly welcome to this small and friendly Italian restaurant. Freshly cooked food scrumptious. Sadly the parmesan deviates from this and now comes in little shakers. And no pepper mill in sight. This will not deter us from returning.
