ALERT FOR VEGETARIANS. My experience of this restaurant was terrible. On reading the menu I noted on the list of vegetarian option they mentioned double cream and parmesan cheese. The waiter who served us asked the chefs to check if my assumptions were correct before I informed the manager and yes it was true, the products they were using for the vegetarian meals did contain gelatine and animal fats. The manager was very rude to me when I informed him that double cream and parmesan cheese both contain animal products and its false advertising to call those dishes vegetarian. He is a very rude man. He intimidated me and my friend so much we decided to leave. He told us he didn’t run a vegetarian restaurant. I think as a diner it’s important to let an establishment know about dietary needs but when met with hostility and intimidation it never makes for a great experience.
Too tasty food, not genuine italian. The owners are not Italians. The food is too tasty and the restaurant is full all the time. I guess they put lots of MSG in the food. I won’t try it again. However, for those who doesn’t care and could eat anything, the atmosphere is really nice.
Consistently good food at decent prices. The service is highly professional and very efficient. Booking is advised particularly at the weekend. The food is cooked in view of the diners which is always a good sign. We’ve been eating here fairly regularly for the past 5 years and have never had a bad meal. The wine list isn’t overly complicated and is good value.
Fancy and fantastic Italian restaurant in the city centre - excellent quality, very delicious food. Their lasagne is to die for - and don’t get me started on the tiramisu… gorgeo.
Good, friendly and relaxed service too.
