We were in this restaurant twice in July and food was just excellent. I don't eat fish and it's hard to find something else - the only choice is usually chicken or steak. But not in this restaurant. I had veal and it was delicious. Pizza is also very good, reasonable price and very big portions. Staff very friendly and... More

Despite being very busy everything about this restaurant was spot-on. The food is delicious, service friendly and efficient and the lovely, chatty atmosphere very relaxing. A special mention for Owen who has to be the most pleasant and enthusiastic waiter around, nothing is too much trouble.

We ate here on a busy Saturday evening (after another restaurant cancelled our reservation) We were a party of eight without a reservation. Unfortunately it really seemed they were doing us a favour by seating us... But port welcome aside, the food and service were good. Special mention for the pasta and ravioli dishes. They were very good. Lots of... More

Went here on the recommendation of Michael in our guesthouse, and we weren't disappointed. Super thin pizza, well priced Montepulciano and very helpful and attentive staff.

A group of ten of us spent an evening at the restaurant. While they were well able to cater to us, the food, wine and ambience were just decent, it wasn't as good as it had been on a previous visit. The location is good and the staff were friendly enough.

Had a meal with my family here. The restaurant wasn't a bit child friendly. We had to buy an adults portion of pizza (11 inch )for our 7 year old. I did ask for a small child's size but was told they couldn't facility me. I wasn't made aware of any other children's options available. To be honest I wouldn't... More

Have eaten here plenty of times but decided one Saturday to order a takeaway. I ordered the prawns and to my disappointment half of the prawns were not de-vained ! By the time I had all the vains removed myself everyone else was eating and the food was cold . Was very disappointed because I'm usually happy with their food
