Walking round on a Saturday evening wondering where to eat in a town you don't know can be pretty frustrating. Hungry after a long drive south our first choice was fully booked so we walked round the corner and found this bistro. It was packed but the staff cleared and quickly laid a table.

We ate here two times I had the house lasagna both times. Both times the lasagna was excellent! Service varied, one time the service was very good the next time the service was average to below-average. The atmosphere was comfortable and friendly.

Reluctant to serve us towards closing time, but when we were seated the service and food were great. Really good pizza!
