called in for lunch. It weas very quiet and we finished up being the only ones in. Has a real Italian look about the place with posters and pictures .Perhaps I am being unfair because if it was busy it might have a far better atmosphere .Waiter very attentive. Helpful selecting wine. Food OK but nothing special . Typical Italian

We enjoyed delicious bruschetta & garlic bread with glasses of chilled white wine while our main courses... More
