Large group of us booked for the two course lunch. We had a long table through the back as smaller tables were at the front of the restaurant.
Service was good and we enjoyed our meal. Good value and decent sized portions.

We, 6 of us, had walked past this restaurant the day before and on an impulse booked it for the following evening. The frontage is very deceptive. It's a bit like the Tardis - a smaller room at the front and then a much larger one at the back. For some reason they tend to seat everyone at the back which means the restaurant can look empty!
The staff are very attentive, but there was a mixture of responses to the food. I had the waiter recommended Linguine Gragano with fresh clams, which was very tasty. The pizzas went down well, but my wife had the Sea Bass which she found disappointing. So perhaps it's a case of knowing which dishes are cooked well!!
Finally, my apologies to Mamma Roma, a nearby restaurant for having attributed this review to them. The owner informed me of the mistake recently via TA but I don't know of any way of withdrawing the review.

This was a great find when you just fancy some quick simple Italian food. The staff were all lovely and the pizzas were divine. Portion sizes were great and very good for the price. The menu was very diverse and would be great for families and couples alike.

We always have excellent service and food. Good choice in the menu. Just a little cramped on busy times.
