A lovely restaurant in a beautiful old bank building with high, gothic ceilings. Good, efficient service with normal Italian fayre but the garlic and chilli risotto was outstanding. We left well fed and not feeling ripped off. Would definitley visit again

Lovely Italian restaurant, excellent value for money, would recommend any of the pasta dishes, especially Roma chicken and Lasagne. Four cheese pizza needs a bit of improvement. Lovely staff and good service.

Arrived on a Friday night where lots of places were already fully booked due to ongoing graduation ceremonies. This place checked their bookings, fitted us in and provided quick service without make no us feel that needed to rush. Great food at a good price.
