Always stop off for a bite to eat here, food is fabulous and is a really lovely authentic Italian which Carlisle doesn't have! Staff are all lovely and very quick service.

Six of us had a late dinner on Valentines day. Excellent food and all were happy. I had the chicken diavola which was good but a touch too salty for my taste. Delicious ice cream for pudding - copa cappuccino. Yum. Portions generous and service was good. Happy to recommend.
