Definitely worth a visit. Great pizza's and friendly staff. Good value for money. Only slight downside is that it is on a busy road, which was noisy when we were there as festival was on.

Had a wonderfully relaxed lunch in a zen type garden feel area accompanied with good pasta and lovely garlic and focaccia breads. What was meant to be a brief lunch turned into a 3 hour relaxation and topped off with good desserts too. Highly recommended.
