Food OK - quite heavy and very big portions. Quite old fashioned Italian food. Lots of garlic. Comfort food, perhaps. very good bruschetta.

Not the first visit. There were 14 of us and it was wonderful. Most of us had 3 courses so we tried a wide variety from the menu. The food and service were superb. We will return.
