Wonderful as ever. I only put 4 for atmosphere because there was hardly anyone there :( Covid has a lot to answer for, I never get bored of coming and the food was delicious, service friendly and quick. Thanks team

The orange juice wasn't fresh but the staff said it was. I wouldn't have ordered it If I'd known it would be out of a carton. Your online ordering system was quite complicated and we ended up ordering from the waiter which we hadn't realised was an option!

Great authentic pizza tons of choices, properly made and they looked and tasted divine. Covid safety in place and a nice big venue, so helps with social distancing. Fab cocktail menu served by fun, friendly staff.

My daughter, who works in the event organising industry, said it was the best pizza she had ever had!! I would say the food was on par with any that I have had in Italy after many visits to Naples 🤘

Lovely evening thank you. Then using the phone to order was efficient but took away from the evening a bit as we had to get our phones out, and then annoying go through it all again when ordering dessert. Could a tab not be possible?

Please can you add a tips option when you make an online order at the table. We didn't have any cash and felt pretty uncomfortable not being able to leave a tip at the end of the meal. Your staff are working in challenging conditions and they're losing out.

The team were fab! We were running late and when I phoned ahead it was no problem to hold the table for a little longer for us. Throughout our meal the team were really engaging, especially with our little ones. The whole order process was really smooth and the food was fast, again really helpful with miserable hungry children! We mentioned it was our sons birthday and they bought out a candle with puddings and sang happy birthday! One very happy boy! I can’t rate the team highly enough for the fab service they gave us! Thank you we will be coming back!!
