The table was very well laid out and I was pleased to note that it came with linen napkins. After ordering up a couple of Peroni beers (£3 each), we chose our food. I opted for the Pizza Pollo Parmigiano at £10, while Paul went for the Tagliatelle Bolognese at £9.50. As a side I ordered up the Rocket Parmesan at £3.75.
As we sat waiting for our food we were able to watch the good looking guys in the open plan kitchen cooking up the various dishes that had been ordered by us and other customers. The kitchen was spotless and along with the restaurant this place certainly seemed to warrant it’s five star cleanliness rating that is proudly displayed near the entrance.
After a suitable wait our food arrived and we were both very pleased with what turned up . My pizza was excellent. I especially like very thin pizzas and this one must have been one of the thinnest I have ever come across. It was wafer crisp thin and cracked as I broke into it. In the name of research I also tried some of Paul’s bolognese and this also was very nice with good flavour, seasoning and fresh made pasta.
With the mains being such a success we decided to give the desert menu a try. I opted for the cheesecake while Paul went for the Semifreddo a combination of hot chocolate spooned over Italian Ice Cream. I was not blown away with my cheesecake (£6.45) but we both thought the Semifreddo (£6.15) was simply delicious. We could easily have ordered it up again, were it not for keeping an eye on our figures.
A quick visit to the loo showed how much effort has been put into styling this place. Five star hotel quality all the way. I was impresed.
Anyway we finished off with two Lilly Espressos at £4.10, and I summary it was indeed a very nice lunch.
