Went with oldest son and daughter in law and grandchildren to celebrate sons birthday. Excellent meal and service. Food cooked fresh so minor adjustments to suit children were accommodated. A lovely authentic independent Italian restaurant

This place is always amazing and never disappoints. Lovely food and service, one of our favourite places to eat. Enjoyed the fact that the valentines aspect was played down - no need as it's fabulous regardless x

Visited last Wednesday evening and once again enjoyed good authentic Italian food. So much nicer than the Italian chain restaurants around. Excellent value for money as well. Have a carafe of house wine which is of a very good standard and finish of with a complimentary limoncello and amaretto biscuits! Service is excellent. Have yet to find fault with this... More
