Stayed at nearby hotel where I was put off by their restaurant reviews so having reviewed this restaurant on Tripadvisor, my wife and I were not disappointed. There is no flashy furnishings or decor but it was clean, honest and welcoming. We were met by the female owner/manger who was pleasant and attentive throughout our meal. The food was on... More

In particular I would recommend the antipasti starter for two, which four of us shared and it was plenty. We had a mixture of pasta and pizza dishes and some... More

The food is good, I cannot fault it, but the service sucks. Can't sit in a seat I want to sit at, second time this has happened. Owner seems a bit difficult and rude.

This restaurant delivers what it says on the tin. It is a popular and homely pizzeria which does not shirk on portion size in any way, be warned, the Gnocco Fritto as a starter may well challenge your ability to complete your main course. I shared the Tagliere Della Chef with my son and there was ample tasty Italian meats... More
