It was our first visit to Harlequin and it won't be the last. We had a mixed plate of cured meats to start which was beautiful and set us up perfectly for our mains of spaghetti with sausage and gnocchi in a meat sauce. Both dishes were full of flavour and wonderfully fresh. We'll definitely be back!

What a find. A genuine italian bistro with an italian chef. Authentic food prepared fresh with ingredeints from the owners region of Italy. The owner will assist with choices and also adds to the atmosphere. The salads are to die for and the pasta with salmon.
