Just go and then go back again.

No I am not Italian, but this little deli/ restaurant cooks quality authentic Italian food with care. It was like being invited into someones house to share a meal. The choice of menu was good and I selected from the specials board. I attended for a work leaving party but will return with my wife time and time again for... More

I visited last night with my boyfriend and his family and this was my first visit. The restaurant is small and intimate and I really liked the atmosphere. The service was speedy and friendly and it felt like dining with friends. The food was fantastic with very large portions, I was certainly full when I left. I would highly recommend... More

My friend and I had lunch last week at this restaurant. I had the lasagne. It was the worst meal I have ever had. There was virtually no meat in it, definitely no cheese sauce the top layers of pasta were dried up where it had been microwaved. It was quite a good sized portion and was just hanging over... More

Popped in unplanned, small but rather atmospheric. God was great, well priced and service excellent. Don't tell everyone as this is a real little jem and we shall be returning frequently now we are in the know.
