                                  Nice food, service just so so. When I arrived for the booked table at 5pm, I asked for dinner menu and also the cafe menu because I wanted to order the cake and coffee while waiting for my friend. But the waiter kept asking me if I am there for dinner, and emphasized to me that table is only for dinner - for three times! But I wanted coffee menu just because I am waiting for my friend to arrive for dinner. I feel like that I wasn’t understood, and they are a bit rude.

                                  Food excellent, service excellent. Enjoyed the food very much. We was on the top floor with a very noisy bunch but didn’t spoil our enjoyment.

                                  Food and service were excellent. The ambiance is quaint but a little run down. Overall, was a really great meal with really great service

                                  Nice atmosphere. Food very good. Friendly staff. A lot of stairs. Stairwell decor a bit tired. The down side of this restaurant was the condition of the ladies bathroom...dirty ...I accept it was the end of the evening but cleanliness should be maintained.

                                  Lovely people that work here. This was my second time there. The first time the food was lovely. Last night I went I the food I didn't find it was fresh product. I asked for Ravioli,no Ravioli left and being an Italian restaurant ( advertising authentic) I would have that they could make this up in 20 mins. They didn't. I got the veal and although the veal was tender,the mushrooms and some sort of potato was awful.so processed. It wasn't fresh. I usually go to a restaurant for the fresh food and atmosphere. We got the cheese plate for desert and this was also terrible. No grapes,no chutney,digestive biscuits no crackers,no walnuts and maybe a few more cheese choices . But last night it just wasn't good for me the atmosphere was lovely.

                                  I ordered Calamar as a starter, garniture (potato, cabbage and carrot chips) was extremely salty and the sauce was not tasteful at all. The former Dolce Sicily location was far away better, it was cozy and warm place, I did not like the new building. Red wine glass options were not wide and taste was average.

                                  We love this Restaurant-a real taste of Italy that never disappoints.The food is so good -there is a limited menu but all done very well and all favourites & winners!The service is polite,friendly and attentive.We arrived early as we couldn’t get into any bars for a drink and the staff were so helpful in sorting a table for as soon as they could.The only downside to this restaurant is there are a lot of stairs-fine for us but not easy for anybody with mobility issues.

                                  Nice ambience, place was very nicely decorated. Food was mediocre, nothing special. Wine was lovely. Staff were friendly and pleasant - good service. Only thing that sort of ruined the evening was that we were sat in a room upstairs by ourselves. There were constantly one or two staff coming in and out of the room, standing beside our table at a service station that was inside the small room. Felt as if we could’ve have a freely flowing conversation as the staff were so close to us and it was slightly claustrophobic. Would have much preferred to have been seated in a busier room with other diners. Had gone before and had a much better experience and so I was overall disappointed with the evening.
