The food here is very good, is like eating home. We didn't have a clue of what to order and asked the old man to pick for us and he did it fantastic. The prices are fair and the wine is also good. We for sure recommend this place.

Very kind staff, family run business...and for all of it you will pay a reasonable... More

Gorgeous family run trattoria with hearty, wholesome Italian food which Mama probably still makes. No fuss but simply delicious food - try the signature Sicilian Pasta Norma (eggplant) and Linguini Marinara. Brilliant. So worth seeking out.
