Good food - great choice on the restaurant week menu. Two for one cocktails were really good. Our server was friendly and chatty, but the service was a bit slow at times.

Meal was great, cocktails were brilliant, atmosphere lovely. Blonde female member of staff kept taking food to wrong tables, she took our starter to one incorrect table first, and the mains to two before they got to us. My prawn linguini was a little cold on arrival, probably because it was taken to a couple of other tables first! Female member of staff with dark hair was our main server, but when we paid by card and didn't leave a tip via the machine (we always tip cash, used to work in hospitality!) she was really snarky and said 'have a good night' in such a sarcastic voice that I didn't tip at all, and this actually would put me off returning!

Food was sublime. Atmosphere was average but it was a Saturday night and I guess someone has to be sat next to the 12-strong geordie shore wanna-be table. Unfortunatley that also meant that the strong service we received at first degraded into nothingness because that table was so loud and demanding. I imagine the staff just didn't want to come anywhere near that table for fear of being accosted by their loud obnoxious chants and whaling at each other so we suffered a bit as a result. The value was great for money we paid, however I can't say for the normal price of things as we were there during restaurant week. I would definatley go back though, the food was great and so was the service at the beginning and it is a beautiful restaurant in a great location. I've recommended several people already. See you next time Central.

Me and my mam went for a meal on Thursday as they offer two pizzas for £10 and two for one cocktails on that day. When we arrived we were shown straight to our seat and given our menus. The restaurant was very busy and very noisy due to the live DJ which made conversation almost impossible. Once we had ordered we only waited around 5 minutes for our pizzas to arrive which we were very pleased about, however when they arrived my pizza was very poorly made and the toppings had hardly been spread with some slices of my pizza not having any toppings at all, including the tomato base! I asked a member of staff if I could have my pizza put back into the oven to melt my cheese as it was it was in hard blocks on the slices of pizza that actually had toppings on. The waitress very kindly took my pizza away to be heated up, however told me that there was nothing they could do about it as it had already been cooked. The food was tasty but very disappointing, however they were offering two pizzas that range from £12-14 each for £10 so we could not grumble much as this is a brilliant saving. Overall the customer service from staff was brilliant, but the food was very disappointing considering I had visited the restaurant just a few weeks before and received a lovely meal. I may wait a while before visiting again, and definitely will not be going back on a Thursday !!

The starters were absolutely delicious, the pizza that had meatballs and olives was incredibly tasty, the pasta and meatballs however did lack a lot flavour and was very disappointing leaving it bland. The pornstar martini however was incredible, well presented and had a gorgeous flavour with a huge kick of alcohol. Staff were so nice, smiling and very helpful. The restaurant was clean with a welcoming atmosphere, only down fault was the tables having no salt, pepper or other condiments. Will visit again.

Lovely atmosphere and environment. New food menu was lovely. Linguine was amazing and the meatball and olive pizza also spot on. Drink selection good although price of a pint of beer on the expensive side. Good attentive staff.
