I read very good reviews about this place, but my experience was not that good... House white wine was room temperature when it was brought. My agnolotti with ricotta and spinach were swimming in tomato sauce... It's ok, but not to recommend.

Found this on a quiet backstreet and was the best Italian I've had in ages! Customer service was great, the atmosphere was wonderful and the food was delicious! The pictures attached (from left to right) are salmon pasta and penne arrabiata/ both amazing!

Got a table right next to the roaring fireplace in this busy little italian spot which was lovely on a cold evening. Food was good and service was decent.

We loved this place so much. The food, the ambiance, the service, everything was excellent. The ravioli i had were by far the best I've ever tasted. Everybody on our table were happy with their food and we also enjoyed the wine.
