Went as a family as Italian is always a favourite. Ordered the spaghetti and meatballs which was tasty but 6 small meatballs and a large bowl of spaghetti didn't go down well with my son as he loves meatballs. The other child had a kids pizza that was a good size and was cooked well. I had the pizza verde... More

I'm not sure why some of the other reviewers found cause to complain as we were very pleased overall. It is certainly not the best Italian I've ever had, but it was very good quality food, promptly served by very pleasant and helpful staff which, coupled with the low price tag gives me no cause to complain at all!

We had dinner here on a Wednesday. It was quite busy for a normal weekday. Service was pretty fast, decent, food was also great, especially the spaghetti divino. All in all, quite a decent restaurant.

There is always the discussion of what is more important in a pizza. The bread, the ingridients, the simplicity and so on. In this situation nothing was really good so instead of confort food, i had a bad pizza. The bread was bellow average and the filling was soggy. Not that is awful, but then with this price i decided... More

We went there in two for a simple business lunch. I had pizza (pretty good), my colleague pasta (OK). The atmosphere is relaxed, the place is not too big, name is Italian and the background music (at moderately pleasant volume) is modern Italian, and that's where the Italian stops; but the espresso was good. Prices are moderate, in two we... More

We went for a dinner there and ordered two dishes of pasta. The pasta dishes are OK with enough taste of sauce. To be fair, the seafood used is of decent quality and is a bit better than what we ate in Italian restaurants in the UK. However the customer service was not worth to be praised at all: we... More

Food does not taste anything (we ordered risotto and lasagna). Service was ok, but food definitely didn't meet our expectations. Prices for entrees are ok but ridiculously expensive for starters. There must definitely be better Italians around.

We usually ends up with one really poor restaurant choice per holiday and this time round, this is IT. Thought I was playing it safe by ordering a lasagne.....how wrong can you get? There's hardly any ragu in it and the pasta looked and tasted funny - it's so packed with pasta sheets it resembled a millefeuille. So left most... More

One of the worst dining experiences we have had on our trip. In short: - 90 minute wait for food. - Food was bland and boring, we ordered seafood pasta which was rubbery and tastleless, and a prosciutto pizza which was the definition of uninspired - About one sprinkle of basil over a desert of undercooked dough. - The wait...
