    This place doesn't look much from the outside but don't let that stop you! The food is all freshly cooked and tastes superb! Probably the best prawn cocktail I've ever had and the pasta was first class. Highly recommended... great service too! "

    " The food and the service was fine. Its a tiny little dining room in the Gidea Park Hotel so the reviewer who said that you have to bring your own entertainment and atmosphere with you was absolutely right. We ordered the specials, the veggie ravioli was really nice as was the lemon chicken (no chips but rosemary potatoes and roasted veg instead of salad).
    The service was excellent and because we didn't want the chips we had to wait a little longer for the chef to make the potatoes but I think people would prefer to do that than have frozen chips, anyway the food was great.
    The apple crumble and ice cream was good too.
    My only negative is that the bar isn't well stocked and I would urge the owners to put some nice bottle soft drinks like elderflower rather than tinned fizzy stuff like Fanta behind the bar.
    The tastecard was easy to use and I would definitely go back if there were 4 or more of us (not sure it would be a suitable venue for a romantic evening meal for me). "

    Wow what a lovely find...

    Outstanding Food..., especially the Ravioli. The staff gave us a wonderful welcome, were very attentive & friendly.

    However In our opinion the dining area does not reflect the wonderful food and staff. Although the decor and tables were set lovely, The music (& adverts!) distracted from this, as it was from Heart radio via a bright large TV, mounted in the center of the room and the room lights were very bright also. We feel, that if the music was more in the background with dimmed lights and candles, this would improve the ambience & make it a five star experience in all categories... Other then that,excellent well done... "

    " We wanted to try this as it is only a few minutes drive from where we live but we were very disappointed.
    The menu is very limited and revolves around pasta.
    The pasta is good but mine was not hot and if food is meant to be served hot, it really should be. I ordered a steak for main course, cooked medium rare. When it came it was well done, dry and tasteless. The steak was very thin and it would have been impossible to cook it anything other than well done, once it hit the pan or salamander it would have been cooked. It was served with lots of frozen chips. Could have sent it back I suppose but that would have necessitated another long wait and by then I couldn't be bothered.
    Another customer told us the owners were away. The staff were very nice but not really up to the job with the food or serving drinks. My gin and tonic looked like a glass of water when it was served and I had to ask for lemon and ice.
    Having been told the owners were Italian, I was surprised there was no fish on the menu.
    Would not return. "
