I had a bit of a worry as I walked in the place. The tables are covered with a white plastic thing and I could see a young waiter squirting cleaning fluid on them and wiping them down. What's wrong with proper table clothes that...More

I ordered the Goats Cheese pizza, it was revolting, completely over powering flavour and smell. After no more than a slice I informed the manager and he took it back. Not only did he not offer me an alternative he was rude, and essentially blamed...More

Under new management since October 2012. Now owned and operated by Lancaster Brewery. Offering excellent quality, made to order Italian food with a Lancastrian twist. Our experienced brigade of chefs hand make a lovely array of fine dining, pizza and pasta options. The opposite of mass produced, microwaved Italian pretenders. This is great Italian food, made properly.
