Found this place by chance on a Sunday evening, had the two course buffet, what an excellent choice and quality would recommend to any one.

Went here on a Groupon deal and was pretty disappointed. Nothing special to be honest pretty disappointing. Service good but food pretty bland - tasted as good if not better in Italian chains.
