    Did not think I would be mugged in Al Dente on mothers’ day. We have eaten here before and had a lovely time and good food. I should have walked out when they said the card machine was not working, then presented with a fixed price menu £25 per head including wine. Food looked like it had come out of a packet and partially heated up. Dishes seemed incomplete, no salad or vegetables. The pizza would have embarrassed any supermarket pizza and I think the waiter was also embarrassed by it. In the past I would have recommended this place but not anymore. Booking was problematic as well

    I have now been here on several occasions. Excellent food every time — fresh, imaginative tasty. I love the décor — feel like I’m on my holidays when I’m in there — the atmosphere is relaxed, and the service very friendly. Oh, and they now have their license — no more BYOB.

    Needs to advertise BYO and make sure corkage is comparable to other eateries in Lark Lane…quality of food is excellent, having just come back from Rome I can say their Tiramasu is the best I’ve ever had. This is definitely going to be a regular.
