I asked for the recommendation from the waiter who highly recommended the risotto. It was probably the worst risotto I’ve ever had. Meatball starter was ok. Wine was good.

I loved the evening here. The food is incredible, the service was wonderful (friendly, but definitely not over-familiar). The lobster linguine came with a full lobster. Everybody’s food: amazing reports. The evening was ruined for me, however! I chose to pay with Zapper (which was...More

A wonderful menu packed with great flavors and generous portions. We really enjoyed our meal and the service. The Vongole is delicious and there were vegetarian options available too for a friend so that you for that - it’s not that easy to find. We...More

Slow lacklustre service. I was with my two teenagers and this may have been the reason why we were mostly ignored whilst the one other table with 4 tourists were served before us on everything including drinks despite arriving after us. Only two tables in...More
