Consistently good Italian.

This is a favourite haunt of ours, and we have never been disappointed! The food is delicious, and the helpings very generous. Service is efficient, and our waiter was charming. The building was once a chapel, and has been imaginatively restored with frescoes of views of Italian villages. It can... read more

Everyone is greeted at the door/bar area and taken to a table, you are left with enough time to look through the menu before ordering. They are... More
