We were casually driving through area and stopped in for lunch. What a lovely surprise to find amazing food and cosy upscale atmosphere. We had gnocchi which was some of the best i've ever had. It was rich but not greasy and the pasta tender and fresh. Our latte was served beautifully and the only disappointment was that we could not get the apple crumble for take away.

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. We asked for our kids' meals to be brought with our starters which was done however there was such a long wait between our starter and main courses that the kids were practically finished eating by the time they arrived. I know they were busy but we saw people who arrived after us getting served before us both with starters and mains. The food as always was delicious and my kids enjoyed theirs too. Overall we had a lovely meal but it was a shame the wait between everything was so long. Felt like we were forgotten about. Would go again though.

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!

This is a busy, busy place so book ahead. Having said that, it is well managed and the service is excellent. The menu at first glance is typical Italian fare but the end product on your plate is streets ahead. Great food in a great atmosphere. Limited wine list ( only two Italian wines ) but was not disappointed with my choice. Only gripe would be the inclusion of "billy roll" in the antipasti!
