Review 1
Music too loud, no air conditioning. Waiter a rude bully who intimidated at every opportunity. Don't order the Muscato pudding wine - it arrived flat, warm, tasteless and went down like a knock off pretend prosecco. This was no Muscat - don't be fooled. We ordered the Chocolate moose and 'Luigi' puddings once the reluctant waiter had made it known we were wasting his time asking which were made of polenta. They both tasted awful. BIG NO NO to spray can whipped cream appearing in both. We couldn't work out what the moose was made of but if it was polenta i do not recommend it. It went down like a chocolate moose you might expect being turned out by a cement factory in communist Belarus. The luigi was drowned out by synthetic spray cream and had a foul tasting polenta sponge. The bits of fruit was real though. A profound disappointment. All in all a bad experience of a gimmick which seems careless and mean spirited in it's delivery.

Incredible options from vegan to meat-tastic! It would be easy to have polenta for all three courses (given that there are polenta options for every course...) but plenty of other options. A fantastically niche restaurant with wonderful service and super friendly staff.

The Polenta was really good, with Sausage and Beans, incredibly tasty and somehow resembling a hearty comfort food. The portions are ok, don't go too hungry. It is a pity that they don't have something like one bowl, polenta on the bottom, some toppings, under a fiver, take away.

Got a takeaway lunch special from here. It was alright, nothing to get excited about and I haven't returned since. However, it might be much nicer to dine-in one evening.

Our first experience of Italian cuisine and what an experience! Service 100%, friendly waiter and extremely helpful advice given. Lovely, cosy restaurant. Will definitely revisit.
