Another lovely dining experience

dined on Tue, 18 Apr 2017

The Tuesday after Easter menu was limited by some favourites not being available - burrata and semifreddo, plus the sangiovese, in particular - but what was on offer was as good as usual.

Great place to have a meal before the theatre.

Great for a pre-theatre meal. Convenient, good service, good food.

Always a good standard however menu needs to be update as many diners are regulars and grow tired of the same fare. Some popular items were unavailable or sold out before 7.00pm, including the dessert special.

We were in good time and the service was very smooth which made for a very relaxing pre-theatre dinner.

I appreciate the way the staff responds to our seating requests and also acknowledged a menu concern in other words the service is good! Thankyou

The pumpkin dish was interesting but maybe a bit bland. It might also be better as an entree because there was just a bit too much of it. My friend did not like the kale in the lasagne. The service was excellent as usual, polite and friendly.
