The only thing that could've made our experience better was the ambience. Music wasn't particularly Italian, although I'm sure they would have changed it if we asked. Also I cannot believe place was empty at lunch time, it is a lovely restaurant. I will recommend and definitely go again.

The best customer service experience in years. Having worked in the service industry for 37 years I rarely go out to eat as I'm generally disappointed. I booked a table for a quick bite and drinks before a show . WOW from start to finish amazing! Greeting, reading the booking and knowing it was a birthday, we were a party of two and an early booking so put on a table for four in a great location, (so used to being put on a tiny table when others are empty) service was excellent down to being aware we only had just over an hour but not rushing us. Food piping hot and fresh. Thank you so much for a great experience, I will be back. One point to help would be .Google maps and the web site and post code take you to the Indian and don't show case yourselves enough when looking for directions. More people need to know your there.

Unfortunately the night we went (17 Dec), the ladies toilet got blocked so we were told to either use the gents or go downstairs. We ordered a bottle of Shiraz, when we wanted a second bottle you had run out so the house wine was suggested, which turned out to be dearer than the Shiraz. You also ran out of numerous other things. You’ve been open a few months now I thought you would have ironed out all these issues by now.

The menu was more extensive than expected from the internet which was a pleasant surprise. The only disappointment was that the jug of Long Island Ice Tea was half measures (or less) of alcohol. Perhaps we should have expected that from the price compared with a single cocktail - but had we known we'd of just ordered two cocktails.

The service was excellent. The waiter was kind and polite and his product knowledge was spot on. Really lovely touch to have a free drink and a little cake. We loved the decor and the overall ‘feel’ of the place. Perfect for a 13 year olds birthday. I was a little disappointed with my food. I ordered the salmon ravioli and it was very bland. The pizza looked good so would maybe order that next time. Overall a great experience and would definitely come back.

My starter of Cambembert was burnt (black on top), bread was burnt and rock hard and overcooked inside and my lasagne was drowning in sauce also tasted like store brought sauce. There were no check backs and I didn't want to say anything as it was my birthday. My friend had mussels and ended up having food poisoning from 2am

Being told it was table service would be great, if they actually came over at any point after the initial order to see if anyone wanted more drinks. A table of 6 all with empty glasses for over 20 minutes before we could get anyone's attention. Also why let a group book a table for food (which we specified on the booking) for 8 and then get grumpy and say when they try to order food that the kitchen closes at 8.30? One of the pizzas came out missing a topping. And when the website says it's open to 11.30 someone presenting you with the bill at 10pm saying they're closing now. It's a real shame as the service just made us feel like nuisances

We felt rushed from the start. The food was very nice however starters were followed literally within 2 mins by mains and we were told by 2 separate members of staff again with a couple of mins that we only had half an hour left. While I understand there are time restraints it could be done better. It was our work Christmas party & I was really quite disappointed for my first visit! There was no area where we could finish drinks so decided not to order anymore at the half an hour left point. A real shame as there wasn’t much ambiance no music to be heard but the place looks lovely & the food & drinks were really very nice.

Took ages for drinks to come, starters and mains came before our drinks did after requesting them to be chased up. Food was nice as was the vibes of the whole place, just a shame about the time for drinks.
