    The free bread you get is lousy even though it's warm. But it's cheap white baguette bread

    Disappointing meal. Oven roasted boneless duck that tasted like sandpaper with a bone in it. Handmade squid ink pasta that had NO flavor, and was so dry, had to add two tablespoons of olive oil.

    Beef carpaccio and smoked salmon thin crust pizzas are gorgeous. Pastas are generally good. Steaks pretty damn good too.

    Made reservations but they forgot abt it n had to wait 10mins for seats. Ordered the squid ink pasta, prawns were not fresh.

    Salads are very big and good, great pumpkin soup. Coffee is however very average, and pizza dough is wrong - it's sweet, tastes like crackers.

    Food is good and service is fab (if not a bit over-enthusiastic) but parking is horrendous!!! Evenings are worse!
