Had a very nice dinner here. Very happy to see two good low alcohol wines on the menu. Pity more restaurants didn't offer this.
Good food, good service.

We had prebooked for a table for 7 and was promptly seated.......and drinks orders taken. We all had something different and everyone enjoyed their meal. I tried for the first time Confit Duck...which was simply delicious..it came with veggies, polenta and Vegetable lasagna. Lovely portion sizes...not too much or too little and had room for dessert. I had the Baileys chocolate mousse which was awful.....so awful I finished the lot and could have had more lol..........Sarah our host was lovely....very friendly, chatty and a delight. One other thing....Sarah offered takeaway boxes for those that couldnt finish their rissotto which I thought was lovely rather than having to ask.

It's strange too have this restaurant ranked at the first place for the italian category in the city. Liguine are definetely to much spicy, that's to think your in a Thaî and choose hot. Gnocchi were overcooked, nearly melted. Nice and pleasant waiters, but it's not suffisant Avoid it.

Warm welcome and drinks quickly bought to table. Not what I would call traditional Italian food, with limited options of pasta being served. We all had different choices and all were very well presented and tasted delicious. Just be aware of portion sizes!! Not being very hungry I ordered off starter menu and added salad to make this my main, well the starter was enough for the 4 of us!!! A little slow serving maim but we were happy to sit and chat. Nice evening.

Enjoyed a good meal here on a Sunday night. Friendly welcome and a good choice on the menu but with high ceilings maybe lacks a little in ambiance.
