Had a fantastic dinner here last night. The calamari starter was exceptional, so tender. Both our pasta dishes were beautiful. We didn’t leave anything on our plates. Will come back again next time we visit the UK.

Quick meal only had a main dish- tasty enough but nothing special, good friendly service Did not like the fact we had to buy a bottle of wine rather than per glass it was very average wine at £21 - crazy !
