The menu was small which I think is always a good sign of fresh, high quality food. I was proved right! The pasta with sardines was delicious as was the chicken fettuccine. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. Reasonably priced yet far better than a 'chain' style restaurant. Great atmosphere.

I have visited many times for lunch and dinner over the last 5 years and it never fails to please. The restaurant is quite small, 4 or 5 tables as you enter and about the same downstairs with 3 or 4 outside for when... More
