My wife and I have been waiting many months to dine here, but it was a real letdown when we actually tasted the food.

Amazing decor inside - sets the scene well to socialise and dine.
Staff were very pleasant and jolly.
Very nice atmosphere inside the restaurant.
Table service was always prompt to say the least. We were regularly being attended to by the staff.

The menu was very limited. Hardly much choice for both antipasti/mains, but even more restricted for vegetarians.
Taste of the food was disappointing, especially for the standards of the restaurant. Plain tasting dishes/sauces, which majorly lacked seasoning/herbs. Nothing special about the food sadly which was a shame.
The restaurant also ran out of 1-2 options of bottled beer. As an Italian restaurant, they did not even have Peroni or Birra Moretti. Only had a choice of IPAs.

Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant for Italian food - don’t waste your money. By all means go for the atmosphere.

Disappointing experience. Firstly a nightmare to make a booking. No contact number available if I wanted to amend the booking or make a special request. When arriving, they sat us at the back section next to a wide door with a draft coming through, away from the main room which had the buzz and lively atmosphere. After requesting to change tables, we were squeezed into the main area onto a tiny table. The waitress didn’t bother to explain how to view the menu I.e. scanning the QR code so we were sat there like lemons for 10 minutes. The table next to us were kind enough to give a paper version to us. When the food eventually arrived, it was nothing special. Ordered the truffle pasta for mains and wasn’t offered any parmesan. Carbonara pizza was too rich and creamy. Overall substandard. Wouldn’t recommend, plenty other places that nail both the food and service, don’t waste your time here. Only positive was the decor.

Gluten free options are standard in most restaurants now, so it was disappointing to see nothing at all. A vastly reduced menu resulted for one in our party. We were told 1.5 hours only allowed at the table, but the place was empty where we were seated, so no need to put that pressure on at the start.

We found there were far too many staff standing chatting whilst we were waiting for our wine. Consequently, the starters came out before the wine had arrived, not ideal. In summary, wine too slow and starters too fast. Then sadly our rose wine also came out at room temperature and had to be sent back for a chilled bottle. Not a great start to our celebration day out.

We left feeling it could have been a nicer experience.
