We had Sunday lunch at this restaurant whilst visiting family in South Shields. There was a party of 15 of us and we were well accomodated. The menu options were wide – their usual menu of italian food as well as Sunday roasts. The italian menu included pzza, pasta, steaks, fish and other meat dishes – a good selection with a good mix of traditional and some different dishes. I ordered a prawn cocktail to start – retro classic! This was nicely presented and very tasty. I then went for the house special – chicken stuffed with crab served with a tomato and marscapone sauce – it was lovely! Very tasty and the crab was nice flakey, white crab meat. I opted for rice but could have had chips, salad or veg with it too. The portion was huge too! Everyone elses meals looked lovely – the pizzas are huge and looked very tasty, the pasta dishes all large too and rissotto with seafood had plenty of seafood in it! One of us had roast and the yorkshire pudding that it came out with was huge!! All in all everyone really enjoyed the food. The service was friendly and quick. Will definately go again when we are next in South Shields.
