3rd time visit so thought I’d finally review. Yet again was so very impressed. Service is always flawless, the waiters are just so knowledgeable and keen to impress. Food is always so fresh, tasty and great value for money. Will keep coming back here.

House speciality, with the hot cheese on top, was very tasty. My partner loved her steak too- cooked perfectly. We used an Entertainment card so was 25% cheaper too. Lovely to sit near kitchen n watch them cook, or out front with street view.

Great food served with friendly service. Menu is interesting modern take on classic Italian dishes. Wine list excellent as is staff knowledge of and passion for their product. You need to book to ensure getting in.

Absolutely wonderful! We enjoyed our evening of gorgeous food and the service was attentive and first class, but not over the top. Highly recommended!
