Delicious food and great ambiance. The server was very friendly and recommended us the specials. We ended up ordering one of each. They also treated us to a slice of tiramisu in honor of my husbands birthday. We will definitely try this restaurant again.

Stopped here by chance. The above was a special for the day and how fortunate was I. Best meal for a long time. Could not fault the service. Partner had the best looking Pizza I have seen for a while. Happy to recommend this one.
