    An enjoyable night with good food. One of our party has a hearing impairment and she struggled a little but no worse than most places these days.

    I booked dinner with the restaurant last Friday night the 3rd, it was a double date. I had requested a cosy quiet space and was given exactly that. I noticed the staff take extra care when looking after the ambience from dimming the lights, to lighting our candle. We were consistently looked after and all our needs were met. Service with a smile especially from the young lady with the piercings and straight burgundy hair. (Didn’t get her name). Thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend to anyone looking for good food, great service and a great evening overall. Rad

    Great restaurant. Lovely staff and very accommodating. The food is delicious - the halloumi salad and pizza especially is fantastic. Reasonable pricing and good portion sizes. Welcoming atmosphere and never to loud. Would recommend!

    We were in early on a Saturday night for a quickish meal before the movies, and the service was good (I was only asked if I wanted a drink once, without a repeat later). The food was perfectly fine Italian fare that came in a reasonable time, and we had no regrets about choosing the place.

    Great waitress and she made the night enjoyable. The room was hot, A/C was on but one unit just ineffective. Food was nice but expensive and the risotto was a bit wet and sloppy on the plate. Pizza was fantastic. Crème Brûlée and the mountain of churros were great and very tasty. All up a great venue, fantastic staff and good food. Just a touch overpriced at $140 for two…
