i ate here last night, got the early bird (before 7.30) we came in at 7.30 and they still let us order from the early bird! its 17.50ruor for starter main and a tea/coffee, which is fantastic, the dont reduce the size of the dishes either just coz its cheaper, i got a bruchetta for starter which was four pieces of bread (choice of 4toppings) on a small chopping board, the for main i had chicken and mash and yummy mushrooms, it was delish, i would recomend this early bird menu it was fantastic value, FANtastic ( youd swear i owned the place but no im a poor student who likes good value from food!!!)

I have eaten here a few times and i found both the food and the service hit and miss. The pizza's can me nice sometimes, however they can be overcooked and last tme i was there, it was worse than a frozen pizza. the pasta's and seafood dishes are tasty though. The service is very hit and miss. Sometimes, it is excellent and other times, it can be bad. As with all Quay Street eateries, it is overpriced for what you get.

I first went here, my dish (pork and beef ravioli w/tomato sauce) was so amazing, I would have ordered another one if i thought i could finish it. For my birthday, we went back and it was,again,magnificent! We had the mussels and tomato & basil soup for starters, and the lobster parpadelle and the ravioli (again). When my ravioli came out with a cheese sauce, I asked about the tomato sauce i'd gotten before, and they graciously took it back, no problem, and got me an order with the tomato sauce immediately. I love this place, and it's a great value.

Being Italian I am very fussy about Italian food, but I have to say this is the real thing! I have been here twice before and my third visit was as good as the first. I had tagliolini pasta with mussels and clams, you can realy taste the fresh pasta and the taste was superb. My friend had baked swordfish with chopped olives, tomato and white wine and she was very impressed. We had a lovely pinot grigo reserva and finished with the tiramisu... yum!

I ate here a few years ago and I found it fine, don't know how it is now but I had a really good pasta and mussels dish. There was also a really nice dessert with ice-cream and white chocolate, and I remember the waitress being particularly nice and friendly. Wouldn't mind trying it again sometime, the menu has a lot to choose from.

The worst meal I have ever had. Do not eat here. Most restaurants in Quay Street serve bad food and are way to expensive.
