Lovely place to eat, not too pricey, busy enough to know it's got a good reputation but not too busy to feel you're being forgotten about or rushed. Mouthwatering range on the menu, the downside of this place is knowing what to choose!

I've always loved coming here and I still do! It's a fantastic family owned Italian pizzeria that tops all the chain restaurants by far! Pizzas are thin and crispy and taste fab!!! A++

The staff were very friendly and courteous. There was a lovely girl called Olivia who was our waitress for the night; she was very bubbly and polite. The food was delicious. I had the lasagne which was scrumptious, I will definitely be back.
