From the moment we sat down it became apparent that this restaurant concerns itself with attention to detail. Good cutlery, linen tablecloths and pleasant decor were matched by friendly attentive staff who welcomed us with a bowl of their own marinated delicious olives and thinly sliced Italian breads. Each course we had was hot, attractive and extremely tasty. We especially... More

GREAT amazing authentic Italian food! Took my partner here for lunch and she and I were blown away by the food. I was amazed by the seafood on offer. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They catered for my fussy wife. We loved this cosy restaurant and well certainly be going back for more!

This is a brilliant place to meet up with friends and have a good long lunch break. The menu is extensive and the staff are most obliging and don't seem to mind if we stay for ages over a cup of coffee after the meal!

Food was excellent, very tasty and a good variety of choice, made better by the specials board. We were there as a party of 10 and they coped well with a large group with all the meals arriving at the same time and hot - something that should be expected but isn't always the case in large groups.
