It serves a typical Italian style menu which caters for a British taste. Lovely clean restaurant, beautifully... More

The food was no short to perfection; Shrimp cocktail and creamy mushrooms as starters, followed by sole with broccoli and baked cauliflower for main. Children had spaghettil bolognaise, very good according to them. Desserts were a succulous orange marinated in... More
