We booked La Dolce Vita (LDV), which does not exist. It has been replaced by Piglet, which had a more restricted menu than LDV published on its website,
A number of items on the menu were not available, including Tiramisu, even though it was before 8pm on a Saturday evening.
We will not be returning,

A few weeks ago I went by to see a sign state they are under renovations. Went today with friends who I have been dying to try this restaurant with me as the food is always amazing. BUT seen there was no renovations done - thought that was strange then looked at the menu and realised it was a different owner who just kept the same name and sign and put the sign up to keep old customers. That would be fine by me if the food was as great , varied and worth the treck as the previous guys (if anyone knows where they went please tell me!!). The food was shockingly bad and the menu is as tiny as the portion sizes. We left hungry which is disappointing when geared up for the former la dolce vitas yummy italian hearty meals. It was pants. They really need to sort the menu out. So disappointed the other guys are gone it was such a great little spot.

There is a problem with this place.
The name is still the same but there was a change of directors for 2 months. The new people did not bother to update the site and the menu.
With my friend we found out a very poor menu and difficult to choose anything from it: for a dinner menu > some starters, some pasta dishes, only 1 dish with meat, few desserts!
Something positive, the food was good and the waiter and waitress were nice.
But unfortunately I would not go back until i'm told that the place has improved

Amazing Italian food. Better than I had eaten in Rome. I had a creamy mushroom dish which was to die for. Best Italian in town.

Cosy atmospheric restaurant. Live music added to the loud, fun ambience. Food was delicious. Very pleasant waitress who was extremely busy running the show on her own!

I went here with a friend last week and a waitress made us feel very welcome and gave us complementary olives and bread sticks this was a lovely touch. she prepared a good plate of antipasti and chatted. She asked the chef to recommend a good wine. It was a lovely experience. So we decided to go the following week and what a contrast, one waitress was on the phone and didn't make conversation or seem to care. Another was non responsive. The chef was very jolly but the girls seemed more concerned talking to themselves. It takes little effort to be nice. This was a big let down as the service was very poor and the food was just average on this day. This is a pity as this is a lovely quirky restauraunt and has great potential to be a lot better, but you need to invest in training good staff.

Visited the restaurant with my daughters we were celebrating my daughter receiving her doctorate so it was a very special night. The experience of having wonderfully cooked food, excellent service and friendly staff made the night a complete success.
