Following a hospital appointment nearby decided to go here for lunchtime menu.Good selection of food which was very nice and although a bit crammed within was not uncomfortable.Just felt the staff may have been a bit friendlier during visit.Would definitely return though.

I was invited for dinner by a couple of friends. This is and Italian restaurant with a twist. It offers classic/traditional Italian food but also they make some versions with Scottish "staples" in them. They have a very good pre-theater menu.
