Great food

Great food but service was a bit lacking sadly! Food 5 out of 5! Service 2 out of 5! Fish mixed grill was massive enough for 2!

Love, love, loved this very authentic italian resturant. The host was extremely welcoming and the free glass of prosecco on arrival went down a treat! Visited for lunch. Great food and drink here. Try the chicken and courgette curry dish with salad. Also the view of the nearby Chuch is great. Amazing!!!

We walked pass this restaurant after we had eaten one evening but it looked really nice and the guy outside was giving away vouchers for a free glass of prosecco with a meal so we thought it was worth a try!

We took a risk and chose this restaurant late in the evening as it seemed like a lovely setting and relatively busy. We weren't disappointed. Our party of 9 had a range of different food on the menu, starters and desserts and everyone was happy. Their pastas, salads and meats went down really well. Staff were pleasant too.
