We looked forward to our Italian in a quaint environment but had a mixed experience. Told after ordering that many things were not available. Some of our food was cold, burnt, others having the steak thoroughly enjoyed theirs. Service needs improving and we had to...More

As the title suggests, this was an awful experience to say the least. Upon entering on a Friday night - the busiest night in December, there was only one other couple dining! I visited this 'restaurant', with three friends. I immediately visited the bathroom, to...More

Small authentic Italian restaurant that always delivers on quality food. Extensive menu available cooked behind the 'bar' by the boss, an Italian gentleman. Child friendly with kid portions £5 for small pizza or pasta. Always popular with my young kids. Recommended every time.

Cold, damp, no music playing, lights flickering off and on, poor service and the smallest pizzas ever! Dreadful place - avoid it, especially if you're hungry. Such a shame as had potential to be good.

What a quirky little number! We had pizzas, and on reading all these reviews, sounds like the pasta should be avoided. The chef is a true grumpy Italian, who shouts at his (crying) waitress, but, it's all part of the experience! Yes, it's all a...More
