Lovely rustic Italian food at reasonable prices. Excellent service and staff are superb and quite engaging. Carbonara, Ravioli and Tiramasu were all delicious. Really great with children too.

Went here on a Sunday night and got their Pre-Theatre which was £10.95 for 2 courses. We had a brilliant waiter serving us who was chatty and friendly without being in your face and interrupting your dinner. Food was lovely and ambiance was really nice too.
