    While the service, especially from the female staff member, was underwhelming, the male staff member was lovely. The venue was quite empty (COVID). The food arrived quickly and was tasty. Especially loved the limoncello gelato.

    Lovely mid week dinner with a friend made even better by the 50% offer. We shared a lovely antipasto platter, papadelle ragu & pizza - all delicious and plentiful (had to take some away with us). Friendly service with a smile.

    ragu and risotto were amazing Would not go for the pizza - flavour was great but pizza base was soggy. Lamb was good but under seasoned Atmosphere and service were good

    The food and setting were great. The service was very friendly but I think they were understaffed on this evening as things took a long time and seemed almost forgotten. But as I said I think with more staff on this problem wouldn't have happened.

    Gino (the owner) is THE BEST. Great food, drinks, service, and atmosphere. Several vegan options. ——————————————————————————————————————————————————

    I don’t leave many reviews, but when asked to review I had to be honest.... the service was absolutely appalling. If I owned this bar/restaurant I would have serious words with staff. Not only was the service terrible - the guy mucked up not 1, but both of our food orders and we ended up eating separately. Food was mediocre. Perhaps they were having an ‘off’ night - but I hope the above improves otherwise they won’t have any customers.

    Cosy spot for cocktails with friends! Pleasant, intimate atmosphere and not too noisy - critical for an overdue catch up. Ask for the chefs recommendation and you won't be disappointed.

    Lovely food- we took advantage of the pizza/pasta with wine lunch deal, and the cocktails were excellent as a dessert. such an extensive menu!!
