This is one of the best Italian Restaurants. The staff, and food excel, in every way. Thank you. Can’t wait to go back when the Restrictions are over. In the meantime we will have a takeaway.

Another really fabulous lunch! This is such a fantastic restaurant, the food is amazing and as it is quite large, social distancing can be accommodated and it felt safe and clean. In these tough times for the hospitality industry, I would highly recommend this place...- great choice, good value, helpful staff and also family friendly. I believe that they are also extending the Eat Out To Help Out Offer for this month (September 2020) but better check first...More

Sanitizing station on entry and the tables were well spaced from each other, which made us feel...very safe and comfortable. Food was excellent lots of Menu choices and a Special Board. Service was First Class, Friendly and Professional and it has a lovely Atmosphere. We girls had a most enjoyable evening and Thank You All for making the evening and very enjoyable Birthday Celebration. Looking forward to my next visit !!!More
