I have been out to Balsamic 3 or 4 times. The very first time I went I didn't have a good experience as my sister, sister in- law & I all ordered some form of noodles and they just wern't any decent at all.
I went again with my lovely mother, then my boyfriend & then the photos from this post are from when I went with my friend Stacey.

After realising the noodles wern't any good at all, I stuck with pizza the next 3 times I went and had no problems!
Although the pizza is quite plain they are still quite tasty & a decent sized portion.

Anyway, this particular time I ordered the hawaiin pizza, Stacey ordered wedges with sweet chilli sauce and sour cream and then got a couple cocktails.
I ordered a cosmopolitan & Stacey got some chocolate milk type cocktail which I am not sure of the name as they have changed their cocktail list on the website!
Unfortunately both cocktails were way too alcoholic for our liking! And thats the first & only time I will ever say that about any cocktail! Infact it tasted like a straight shot of alcohol with absolutely no flavorings at all.

The wedges were nice, although when they came out we thought they were burnt. They were probably slightly over cooked as they were extremly crunchy but they were really nice dipped in to the sour cream.

The service can vary from waiter to waiter. One time we had a waitress come over to us every 5 minutes asking how our meal was, then when I went with Stacey we had to fight to get the waiters attention to get us the bill, but overall this place is quite nice as long as you can live with ordering pizza or some of the simpler dishes.
