Didn't get chance to hardly get through the door before been shouted at by some member of staff " no highchair no highchair " we didn't even bother to inform him that we didn't need one. Shame as we have eaten there before , but never again!!!!

We visited on a busy Saturday for a family get together and we were all really impressed by this friendly family run restaurant. The tables are a bit cramped but it all adds to the friendly relaxed atmosphere. We shared a good house wine and shared a starter of olives,bread and a pizza sized garlic bread. Mains were various pasta dishes with stuffed ravioli and prawns with asparagus, pizza and a Italian sausage pasta dish. We all enjoyed the food and were impressed by the charming attentive waiting staff. We finished with excellent puddings of white chocolate profitaroles and Italian ice cream. All the food is freshly prepared and authentic. Wonderful food in a lovely family run restaurant made for an excellent experience,we will be back!

The restaurant was very busy but that didn't hinder the service, however the table we were shown to for couples were relatively close together which was a bit off putting, but that didn't stop us from enjoying the food.

Was in the restaurant 5 min and could hear elderly Italian waiter complaining about Americanos. We didn't even have time to become typical rude Americans. Watched as others were brought bread...not us. We watched as others were waited on in timely manner ....not us. Food was ordinary and very slow. If you're European you may be okay...but Americans take your business to the French restaurants...they're infinitely more pleasant and the food is better.

We were stopping in the same street and saw this place had good reviews so popped in for some food last night.

Was quiet when we got in at 7 but got very busy after that so bookings may be needed to guarantee a table.

Service was friendly and quick. Pizza and calzone were lovely. Staff were attentive. Good menu.

Only thing was it was a little cramped where we were sat in the window and we were sat at a pretty small table. Just made it a bit loud around you if you wanted more of a quiet or romantic meal out.

We'd be back.
