The meal and the service were very good. It was a nice place for families or couples wanting a pleasant quiet meal. I will certainly go back.

Dined here with friends and was disappointed overall. Staff are friendly and helpful but the food is mediocre and overpriced. The presentation and taste is very very average and not what I had expected more Pizza hut than an upmarket Italian restaurant.
