Certainly the warm welcome given and the heavenly deep fried mushrooms with brie` cheese starter augured well. The lampuki with caponata sauce main that followed, was cooked to perfection. The service was impeccable and so friendly. But... More

Very popular but I am not sure why. Very dark inside & not much space between tables. Very slow, seemingly uninterested service. But worst of all was the food. 3 of our party ordered pizzas - they were inedible! I am told that the lamb was nice though
