After reading the reviews on this website and speaking to friends about this restaurant, i was really looking forward to sampling this restaurants food. I wasnt let down by the food, which was the best Italian food id ever tasted, but was let down by the service.
We arrived at the restaurant at 9pm, and after being seated we were given menus and served drinks very quickly,(a little too quickly we found out later). The meal was excellent!. Starter and main course was superb, but as we were nearing the end of our main course we felt hurried to finish our meals. This was approx 10pm. We asked to sit outside to finish our coffees and to smoke, and was very abruptly told to be "no more than ten minutes!". All the seating had been cleared away but a very miserable scottish waiter reluctantly set out two chairs. We immediatly asked for the bill off a man who was one of the owners, who had equally the same temperment. I thanked him for the great food and told him that we saw his restaurant on this web site, to which he gave a "am i bothered" shrug of the shoulders.
In summary, Great food, bad atmosphere.
