I've been here many times over the years. The food's not bad for the price but the service ruins any chance you have of a nice time. They ignore you, they like to tell you its your fault your food is taking so long (40mins for 3 normal pasta dishes?) , they brought us a bottle of wine when we'd asked for a glass and then blamed us for changing our mind, and then have the nerve to want to charge you £1 for paying by card. Please avoid, it just leaves you unnecessarily riled up when you leave. This is a recent thing and I really hope the management staff decide to take the feedback onboard.


I love the food at this place, and as a regular, I always have a nice belly when I leave-the only problem is the truly disrespectful and awful service we receive EVERY TIME. The waitresses always have terrible attitudes and I have even once been scowled at for asking for ketchup for my fries! They never smile and they ignore you when you ask for something quickly, often pulling a face or rolling their eyes. I am always frustrated when I leave, hoping they will improve their attitudes, but it never happens. I have started not tipping them, to which they again roll their eyes and laugh at, which is even more rude. There are reviews all over the internet saying the same thing: It is common knowledge that the waiting staff are extremely rude. I think the management should start to do something and realise that their staff is destroying the great reputation that their chefs have built up.
