We've taken family and friends here a number of times and the food has always been good. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Place is very clean. Need to book most nights but definitely at the weekend. Once they realised it was a birthday, they brought out pudding with a candle in and sang happy birthday to me :)

We came following the reviews on tripadvisor, a Saturday night and quite busy, good start, the food was ok sauces with the pasta a little bland, the drinks were quite expensive, the staff were very busy but attentive. We would be unlikely to return.

We've eaten here a few times as a couple and a for a large family birthday meal. We have never been disappointed, the food is out of this world and the staff are so helpful and attentive. I'd eat here every weekend if I could and we can't wait to go back! We recommend it to all our family friends... More

Me and my family visited this restaurant for Mother's Day. The staff were so friendly and couldn't have been more accomodating regarding wheelchair access and entertaining my 5 year old. The food was fabulous, would recommend 100% and will be going again soon

We have been going to this restaurant for a number of years and it never disappoints. The staff are wonderful. Leo and Ursula are the most lovely people and the food is always delicious - freshly cooked and soooo tasty. The Nero d'avola wine is to die for and all in all, it is a great, warm and friendly place... More

The restaurant is small with a lovely local, family run feel. Service was very efficient and attentive. The food was good and reasonably priced for what... More
