We visited here tonight with a friend.
The meal was superb, staff were so friendly and service was excellent.
Can highly recommend the quattro stagioni pizza, the best I’ve ever tasted., the combo of half a pizza of your choice and half a oration of pasta of your choice went down extremely well with my husband
We will definitely return again
Very good value for money and good quality ingredients.
Thanks for a lovely evening.
We booked a table for 7:30, we turned up at 7:25 and there were already people standing I. The entrance waiting for tables they had pre-booked. At 7:35 I (very politely) asked how long it would take to seat us and was told “it only just gone 7:30, you can always go somewhere else”. So we did. We won’t be back. I would recommend the Tickled Pig, Renouf’s or any of the very nice pubs in the area.
We had a group of 12 of us on a Monday night for a birthday celebration.
Firstly, we arrived the bar was busy and we were told by the waitress we would get drinks quicker if we sat at our table. But then the waitress just walked off. So we followed her to find our table. We then waited 30 minutes before anyone came to ask us if we would like a drink. Not to mention you are packed in like sardines and can barely move around the restaurant or get into your seat!
One of our party had to wait until we had finished our starters to receive hers, we understand mistakes happen but this wasn't the only one. She was then rushed to finish because our mains were ready to come out!!!
The coke was entirely flat, we asked for another one instead and it was still flat, so we just had water but we were still charged for the coke (that we didn't drink) at the end!
One of our party was handed a corked bottle of red wine which hadn't been opened...... we then had to ask them to open it for us.
Lots of us ordered calzone pizzas with different toppings. A male waiter or chef bought the pizzas out and shouted 'calzone' and when we asked which one it was he just huffed and said 'I don't know' and chucked it down on the table (he did this repeatedly with different mains). We then had to cut into the pizza to try and figure out which one it was!! He was extremely rude and completely dismissive of us. Another one of the mains was wrong and had to be sent back to the kitchen to be corrected. No one asked if we would like any sauces or came to check how our meals were (until we asked them to).
We just got the impression the staff didn't really care and they weren't attentive. One of our party had a calm discussion with the waitress to list things that had gone wrong and she had an excuse for everything, mainly because they were 'too busy'. I have worked in many busy restaurants and that was never an excuse for poor service and attitude. There was no offer to rectify the situation or any apology and we certainly won't be returning. We came away feeling extremely disappointed.
I was given plenty of recommendations for this restaurant so was really looking forward to eating here. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case, we had starters but one family member was waiting right up until we had all finished ours and the mains where coming out, we where then left to cut open some of our meals to find out who’s was who, because the waiter didn’t know what it was, we had to send one meal back as it was completely wrong, we where then given a bottle of wine that we had to send back as it hadn’t been opened for us, we also had to ask for condiments on the table as we where not offered them, the coke was repeatedly flat after we had asked a few times for fresh ones, it was just a shambles, service was really not very good, food was ok not amazing. I appreciate it was busy and we were a big party 12 of us but still get more staff in when your as busy as that.
We have been to this place a few times, but went on a Friday night about 7pm not busy at all but are main problem was we was rushed from start to finish we was there 40 mins. We got our drinks & she took our order we both had prawn & avocado for starter very nice, as soon as she took it away are mains were in front of us no break what so ever in between. I had ham & pineapple very nice indeed my husband had diavolo he said it was very bland no chilli what so ever in it so he was disappointed. So if you want a quick meal then this is the place to go but if you wanna take your time I suggest you tell the waiter you would like a break in between your meals.
This is a great place for lunch in Wimborne. Excellent pasta/pizza specials on offer. Whilst smaller portions than main menu options they are really tasty and great value. Well worth a visit but can get busy. Obviously others think this is a great stop off...More
