We go all the time. It’s our favourite restaurant. Food menu has such nice options. Pastas are great but he bellagio risotto is just to die for. Potato skins are delicious. Just love it.

Went for a quick meal for two on a weekday evening. Good value for money, good service with a reasonable choice of food. Pleasant surroundings. Booked but probably no need.
