    A very busy restaurant. You are treated well if you are spending money but if it is evident you are there for one course and water then get ready for being ignored. Pasta was okay. Bolognese was tasty but Spaghetti in Olio was served luke warm and tasted burnt. PG

    lovely food, excellent service and overall great value for money. Only criticism would be the music played was quite loud and ‘club-esque’ something more classical/relaxed could be better. Would definitely recommend however!

    We went to celebrate our 2 year anniversary. There was no acknowledgment from the staff and nothing to make our evening feel special at all, our waiter rushed to take our order without asking how our day was. We had to wait 10+ minutes for water and when we wanted a dessert menu it took them another 10-15 to bring it over The food was absolutely superb which makes the let down in service a real shame

    The starters were lovely however the main courses were poor, my partner had ordered a pizza which was really underwhelming so they made him a fresh one which again was the same, very underwhelming, we ordered two seafood pastas which were both bland, just tasted of chilli and then a mushroom risotto which the portion size was small and again just very underwhelming, the service was very good however, just a disappointing evening out celebrating a birthday

    Upon being welcomed into the restaurant, we were greeted with nothing but a smiling face, rested upon a waistcoated gentleman. The said gentleman, guided us to our table, and introduced us to our server, who ensured us she'd be there for anything we'd need that night, anything... at all. To start we had fried burrata, which was nothing short of moderately pleasing, later to be followed by the Arrabbiata, which was indistinguishable from the arrabbiata sauce found in aisle 7 of the local Sainsbury's, which is a solid arrabbiata, gorgeous zesty tomato, and always reliable. The fungi risotto was a fine, even exceptional, example of fairly decent risotto. The strawberry daquiri was as sweet as freshly picked strawberries, and as anticlimactic as receiving a birthday card, and opening it slowly, only to find no cash inside. All in all, I couldn't fault the restaurant at all, apart from everything mentioned. (It was genuinely really great)

    We came here for the first time as we're not from the area and was attending a concert just over the road. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left we was met with nothing but warm welcoming smiles and outstanding table service. The food matched such an authentic resturant and staff. And was probably one of the best Italian meals we've ever had! Absolutely Beautiful! We will Definitely be back!

    A great restaurant and lovely restaurant staff. They are very attentive and good fun. We had a delicious 2 course meal and a glass of wine for £25 each. Great value. The food was fantastic, especially the fried vegetables (courgettes and peppers). I would recommend this restaurant to all. It is a fun place where you feel welcome and at home. Thanks Matteo and Paolo.

    The food was faultless and delicious! A little bit pricey but I don’t mind paying if it’s of that standard, service was top drawer and bar a slightly loud table behind us (which isn’t the restaurant’s fault obviously) it was a superb visit and highly recommend.

    We discovered this restaurant last year when visiting the city, and were so impressed we didn’t even consider anywhere else upon our return to Nottingham. We cannot fault anything about our dining experience and the staff are a credit to the restaurant. The decor and ambience make it feel like a high class restaurant, but without the pretentiousness of some establishments that can be so off putting. So our dining experience was very enjoyable and relaxed.

    Abbiamo iniziato ad ordinare ma l’antipasto richiesto non era più disponibile , a quel punto abbiamo chiesto se altre cose non fossero più disponibili ed il cameriere un po’ imbarazzato ci ha fatto una lista tra cui: il filetto, la burrata , gli gnocchi e gamberoni . Ho chiesto steak and lobster ma anche la bistecca era finita . Ho chiesto solo l’aragosta ma anche quella era finita !!!! Ci siamo alzati e siamo andati via

    Last night was the first time I actually didn't enjoy my evening. Due to the Easter weekend and dining there on a bank holiday Monday, it was understandable that there would be food items not available. However we were never informed of what was out of stock straight away, which has usually been the case in the past. So after 3 occasions of choosing something and the waiter/s going to and from to find out if something was in stock, started to grind on me. Our waiters swapped out 3 times which was concerning and made me feel like perhaps we were the problem and they didn't want to serve us. Being on table 32 in the corner may have also contributed to the poor table service frequency, however the restaurant wasn't busy at all and we felt seriously neglected by having to look around for long periods of time for a waiter. Empty glasses were not removed when new rounds of drinks were brought to us and overall I got the impression they didn't actually care. The staff were always huddling around the kitchen pass and being loud and joking around (which has never been a problem in the past as that adds to the atmosphere), however last night was at the expense of service and customer neglect set in. We always order courgette fries and last night they were obnoxiously salty, along with the calamari. The rest of the food was fine, however my partners was well below standard in terms of taste and expectations. I've never been one to complain and do my best to give benefit of the doubt as running a restaurant I imagine is no easy task, but last night was by far the worst experience we've had in many years eating there. Whichever manager was duty didn't keep staff in check and we truly felt neglected. As mentioned, it was a bank holiday after Easter weekend so completely understandable that deliveries couldn't be made for food items etc, but we should have been informed at the start instead of constant back and forth with the kitchen.

    Really dissatisfied with the quality of the food last night. It’s not often we go out to treat ourselves to a meal and I was thoroughly disappointed. I had the penne pasta Bolognese and it was taste less.

    I was down visiting my son for the weekend and treating family for a meal. This restaurant was a perfect choice however unfortunately i did have a few issues ... 1/ The tables are too close together 2/ The chateaubriand was not presented or cooked correctly - this was quickly sorted without question and changed to two fillet steaks 3/ Another steak was not cooked as requested. The staff were fabulous, service impeccable and i would definitely go back
