I had a quick bite with a work colleague at lunch time. I ordered pasta and it wasn't great. Restaurant was fine but nothing special and I didn't really enjoy the food. The staff were pleasant. Wouldn't rush to return but it was OK.

Food and service was excellent. Beer could have been colder and the price is very reasonable. The calamari was really good.

Always great food. Meatball pasta and fillet steak are exceptionally well done at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit.

Stopped for a quick lunch. Casually mentioned to waitress that the pasta is slightly watery. Manager acted promptly n professionally without any complaint being laid. Highly professional. I will return based on that alone. Food was good btw.

I took an hour for our order to arrive, we order Pasta, Sole & baby chicken. Food was neither bad nor good! average indeed.. The response time from the waiters were also very slow, The only highlight was the Pana Cota Dessert!
