As always friendly reception and atmosphere. A great menu, enough choice to meet anyone's palate without being too complicated. Food cooked to perfection, a true Italian experience. Not cheap but the bank was not broken. We will go back soon.

No way did we expect food this good from a small-town Italian restaurant with a cheesy neon sign above a chartered accountants' office in a pokey two-storey building. Such a pleasant surprise! The foccacia bread was well seasoned with herbs and garlic butter and tasted...More
