Fantastic!

What a great find!! This is a lovely authentic Italian restaurant, great food and house wine. Topped of with limoncello & Italian dance lessons...what a find & what a night! Will definitely be back but need recovery time first.

Lovely meal, great staff, nice atmosphere made for a very enjoyable evening. We had not booked and they were very busy - obviously a good place to eat- but they fitted us in as early diners which suited us as we were leaving early next day.

Luckily we booked. It is a small intimate place and we were treated specially. The food was excellent and the service good. This is proper authentic Italian food. The atmosphere and service was perfect. Well Done

The restaurant exudes a warmth and homely atmosphere that was felt very welcoming. The food and the service were excellent. Very family-friendly as well. Super experience.

We had a good pasta dinner in this restaurant. All other pastas we ordered were good except my vegetarian pasta which wasn't so good. Broccoli and peas, very boring. Fortunately I got a good dessert, After Eight Sunday. Tiramisu was quite dry. I recommend a table reservations, the restaurant is quite popular.

We went in just for a quick lunch but ended up spending 4 hours! Not because of slow service but because we didn't want to leave. Excellent spaghetti with mussels, great house red wine and fantastic lemoncello made our visit worthwhile. Sure the restaurant isn't big, but I'd prefer to call it intimate and cosy. We would surely visit again.

Lovely little place with first class food and service until the dessert. Advertised as strawberry cheesecake but was obviously redcurrants, asked for pistachio ice cream but it wasn't. I think it tasted of almonds, I hate almonds. Otherwise, brilliant.

This is a really quaint little restaurant with great Italian food and very helpful and obliging staff. There is a wide menu choice and a good range of reasonable wines on offer. Good central location within easy walking distance of most places in the city centre
