Been here several times now and the food is lovely! Never had a bad meal. Service is really good and the surrounding are beautiful. More like fine dining! Unlike most Italians in the area the risotto is proper arborio risotto rice and not the long grain stuff!

Thank you once again to Aldo and the staff for making my retirement meal as good as ever. Food brilliant as usual. Didn't realise you could ask for half portions as for some of the pasta dishes are quite ample. Here's to the next time.

This is my forth visit tonight and have always raved about this restaurant, but not tonight. The food is always excellent, but sorry guys but your cook let you down tonight. That was the worse lamb shank I have ever had, and I have many. You describe it has tender, homemade, I would describe it has rock hard and burnt.... More
