We usually get a take away but decided to dine in as we hadn't since our kids were born. The place was very busy but we had booked so we were accommodated quickly.

Pizzas, pastas and rice are great. Chicken good too. Portions are huge, prices economical. Staff are super, so kind! Our waiter even removed our balloon from ceiling, no job too big! Absolutely a great find!

Limited wine list ( only two Italian wines ) but was not disappointed with... More

I also ordered chicken cacciatore (or Hunter's stew) but the recipe was distinctly different from the one I got to relish in Italy. I hope to visit again and try... More
