most unfriendly premises we have ever had the misfortune to be in. although the food was good,we have no inclination to ever return here. owner does not deserve to be in business n should try his hand at sweeping the roads.

When this place first opened the food was really good! The service was never excellent but the food was good enough to ignore it. However, the last couple of years it is no longer a place I would recommend. Most (not all) of my encounters with the staff have been uncomfortable due to their attitude.

Was looking for a nice Italian meal but was very disappointed Staff were very stand off ish & came across as unfriendly. Toilets were out of order as they were overflowing. Meal was not very nice at all. Can't recommend this restaurant with my experience.

Id' been here for lunch before but this was the first time I'd been here for dinner. The dinner menu is more extensive than that at lunchtime but the food remains excellent. All our starters and main courses were really good and the service was pleasant and efficient.
