As always beautiful food and super tasty cocktails. The 2 for £10 on the pasta dishes was amazing value. The only downfall was waiting 45 minutes for our food to arrive. The staff were very apologetic and really friendly so overall still a very pleasant experience.

We had a lovely time. Enjoyed food and drinks. Service was helpful and prompt throughout our meal however we were really disappointed with how our visit ended. Our bill/payment was incorrect on 4 occasions (overcharged at each time). I don’t feel like we received an adequate apology our inconvenience. I can’t help but think that the error in bill and payment would have been missed if people had been drinking more or were in a larger group and I think this is very dissatisfactory. Even when we told your waitress she had overcharged us, she tried to tell us we were incorrect.

It did take a it too long to get a drink on arrival but the staff were nice and our waitress was friendly. 2 pasta for £10 great value on Monday. Large portion for the money.

Great cocktails and food, the restaurant area could be a little quieter than the bar area though as you can’t have a conversation with fellow diners without shouting at each other! But other than that it was great!

Amazing! Probably I'll add some more classic Italian pizza flavors, but that was really good!

Pizza was delicious, as was the Gnocchi. Some of the staff were lacking, the maitre d’ in particular was very abrupt and verging on impolite.

The evening was fantastic and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful! The bar tender in particular was great. Food was great and the upstairs area was the perfect space. Thanks a lot!

Shocking service on this occasion. Got sat at our table at 7pm, didnt have our orders taken till 740pm, and then finally got our food at 830pm. From the moment we sat down it should not have take an hour and a half to receive 2 pizzas, which take minutes to cook. Staff members aimlessly tidying tables that were already set and unaccompanied and ignoring the customers that were actually in and trying to catch their attention. Failed for about 20 minutes asking someone for the bill and ended up going to pay at the bar. I understand weekends are busy but they were clearly trying to bite off more than they could chew. Shocking customer service and had our night ruined.

Really like the food and the service...only complaint is that every time we come there seems to be a few flies loitering about. If you could sort that it would be great.

Really yummy cocktails and tasty food - we shared starters and sharers as a main course. Service felt a little rushed, but I guess that's Friday night!

I can not fault the food as the pizzas were amazing and arrived very quickly however the same cannot be said for the drinks!! We ordered our first round of drinks which came fine, our second round of drinks then took over 25 minutes to arrive, we had to try and catch a waitress which was hard within itself to find out where they were. These had not even been made, once they arrived the presentation was rushed and 2 cocktails were incorrect! We then had to raise this again by this point we were ready to leave as had somewhere else to be. Before this I have been a few times for food and always had an enjoyable experience however this has made me question returning
