    The food here is nice. The pizzas are delicious and the other guys had ceasar salads which were nice. But the service is brutal. Waiting over 30 minutes for our food. And once served your food the wait staff didn't come near us again. We had to try flag them down for another drink and twice they forgot bring the water to the table.

    Lovely food. We sat outside because the booking would not allow for inside tables, which was fine but there were a lot of table available inside, so would have been nice to have the choice. The food was very tasty, but the service was bad. We sat at our table and it took about 15 minutes before the menus were brought out (we had to ask). It was another 20 mins before any one took our order. The starters came out quickly, but no one came to clear our plates, but the time our mains came out no one had cleared the plates, our server was visibly embarrassed by it. Overall we were there for 2 hours. Wouldn’t return based on this experience - would suggest others avoid the outside tables, unless you are happy to wait.

    Ordering experience was a different experience, and we ended up with our starters and mains all at the same time. Lack of follow up for table service with waters, etc. Food was good, Prosecco was horribly flat and disappointing.

    Room to improve I recently visited a local Italian restaurant with high hopes for an authentic culinary experience, but unfortunately, it fell short in several key areas. The service was acceptable, but there were notable issues. For instance, the value lunch menu was not readily offered for lunch and required a specific request, which felt unnecessarily cumbersome. Additionally, the staff lacked proper training in Italian culinary standards, evident from their unfamiliarity with basic Italian dish names like "parmigiano," which I had to explain as Parmesan cheese. Moreover, the absence of uniforms or name badges made the staff appear unprofessional and disorganized. The restaurant's ambiance was also lacking. The menu display outside was empty, missing out on significant marketing opportunities to attract potential customers. Inside, the music was barely audible, overshadowed by the sounds of traffic, which detracted from the dining experience. The efficiency of service left much to be desired. Plates from previous courses were not promptly cleared, and basic necessities like napkins and additional cutlery had to be requested rather than being provided proactively. On a positive note, the food quality was good, but it did not meet the mark of being truly authentic Italian cuisine. For instance, while the pizza dough was commendable, the pizza itself was cooked in a gas oven rather than a traditional wood-fired oven, affecting the authenticity of its flavor. There was a noticeable disparity between the prices charged and the overall dining experience delivered. The quality and authenticity of the food did not justify the cost, making it difficult to recommend on value alone. In summary, while the restaurant has some potential, particularly with the quality of its food, the numerous shortcomings in service, ambiance, and overall authenticity make it hard to recommend.I would consider returning only if specifically invited for a party. Not on my own.
