Had a lovely meal here after they fit us in without a booking. The staff were friendly, the menu had a good selection and the food was fresh and tasty! A good selection of gins were on offer and it was all reasonably priced.

Good pizza. Anti pasto was huge and good, but they should drop the lettuce, it really doesn't belong in the dish. Wine is reasonably priced. Staff are very friendly.

It would depend on the time of day, I was there early evening and did not have to book but later may require a booking, best idea would be to phone and ask.

Hi, yes I recommend booking. At present we are a small restaurant with only 14 tables so we book out fast, especially at the weekends and Sunday is popular with families and friends. Hope to see you then. Many thanks, Jason... More
