Excellent independant restaurant.

Came here for a meal with a business colleague. Food was excellent, we had a mixed starter, a pizza and a pasta dish between us. Pizza was thin and crispy, exactly as I like. Pasta was from the special menu, with a ragu filling and was excellent. Will definitely return.

Had a really nice starter of muscles but was a bit let down by the pizza. Good toppings but the pizza base was roĺled far too thin meaning that the toppings were barely cooked when the the base was crispy, almost wafer thin. Disappointing really as i get high hopes when i see a traditional pizza oven. That said the... More
