The best pasta I've ever had in an Italian restaurant! Lots of different pasta types and sauces available with lovely sides. Excellent service and the staff were very polite. Will definitely be returning!

Had a brilliant lunch from the set 5pm Menu on Saturday 23 May 2015. Huge portions and the Tiramasu was one of the best I have ever tasted. Highly recommended.

You can order a starter and a... More
