This restaurant has now been taken over by the management who ran "Ciao" just down the road (which has now closed!) and what an improvement - they have imported all the good points from old place and of course, they now have more room! The staff are friendly and the service is very good; the food is good and they still offer the 10% discount if you produce your tickets for the Hippodrome or a couple of other places.
Although a little further away from the city centre than the old Ciao, its still very handy for a pre-theatre dinner before going to the Hippodrome. And of course, if you fancy a more leisurely dinner, there is now more room to enjoy it!
