Good food, reasonably priced. Cheap house wine. Cordon bleu it is not but the food is tasty, good portions and a good choice.

We ate at the restaurant on an early Saturday evening. The atmosphere was warm, lots of children and their parents in the front section, the service fine, but the food was so-so.

Then, the fettuccine with sausage, ham, mushrooms, and capers in tomato cream sauce, and fettuccine with king prawns. We also had the fresh fish of the day. The staff was friendly and professional, and although the food service was... More

My daughter and I were promptly seated, brought menus and drinks without delay. This was a new experience for us in Italy... We were pleased! Our waiter was very efficient, friendly and did I mention fast, he would slide around corners to make sure everyone was taken care of. The food was good and we enjoyed our meal. The bill... More

Looked at other reviews and gave it a try. Very busy with locals but food very bland. Only 2 waiters for a packed restaurant. Wouldn't go again
