The meal was great, service was great,quick. Friendly. It was very busy and very noisy at 7.00pm in the evening, I was very glad that I booked for table of 2.
My only thoughts were that the lighting was so bright at the back of the restaurant, we needed to wear shades! No good for a couple on a first date!!

we dined at 20:00 after meeting for drinks.
squid starter was very good, the main meals were also very nice.
starter of bruscietta was particularly small and soggy.

Olives really good
Lasagne was very tasty and well presented
Vegetarian salad was fresh but had only 1 artichoke,very few beans and lots of potatoes .So not really as advertised.

Saturday 14/01/12 7.45pm. Allocated central table at kitchen / bar end of restaurant. Very disruptive area due to kitchen noise & staff back & forth continuously. Unable to have conversation with guests and waited until we could be moved to table closer to the front of the restaurant, which was a lot better (although acoustics are not good - nothing to absorb the noise and noisier than most restaurants we have used).
Starter: Rosemary & Sea Salt Bread with Olive Tapenade. Very nice, but the tapenade portion was a bit mean.
Mains: 1. Spinach Ravioli; 2. Pizza with Funghi & Pancetta; 3. Pizza Calzone Con Carne Piccante; 4. Spaghetti Carbonara. 1 to 3 were fine, but spaghetti carbonara sauce was unlike any spaghetti carbonara anywhere else (no cream in the sauce - tasted more like chicken stock !) Manager insisted on deducting cost of spaghetti carbonara, despite me offering to pay the bill in full - so fair enough.
Not for us - too noisy; a bit too cramped and equal or better quality food available at other italian chain restaurants, that have a nicer ambiance.
