I ate here twice in a week. The first time the food was pretty good but i think £6 quid for a saucer of minestrone is a bit steep as my friend discovered to his disappointment. I started with the goats cheese and grilled vegetables which was tepid and served on a bizarre crispy pancake type thing that i could have done without. As a main course i went for the veal alla norma which was delightful althogh the accompanying potatoes and green veg (These had to be ordered separately for an extra few quid which I think is a foul game for a restaurant to play) were pretty average. For dessert i can highly recommend the tiramisu. I went back there a week later because i'd heard the pizzas were good. I opted for the pizza Bucci which was covered with parma ham and rocket. Unfortunately the pizza was extremely doughy as it hadn't been cooked for long enough and my two companions had the same problem with theirs. It was also too thick and I wish i'd just gone to pizza express round the corner. This was followed up by a orange stuffed with ice cream that tasted like it had been in the freezer since 1946. Overall a pretty disappointing meal and I'm not quite sure where this place has got it's great reputation from.
