I went here last night with some friends as my partner had heard great reviews from his Italian friends . It didn't disappoint ! It was a quiet Monday night so there were only two tables but it still had a nice atmosphere . Very friendly waiters . We had some antipasto to begin . The mozzarella... read more

Whether it's with friends or family, this is a perfect venue for true Italian cuisine served by staff who love what they do. It has all the atmosphere of a family run business. And, beside the usual comparisons of tasty food and good wine, it has the one ingredient that can't just be placed on the menu. This restaurant was... More

Beautiful traditional Italian food. We had a pizza and a bruschetta special, both of which were delicious. Pizza was the best Iv ever had. Tiramisu was a delicious traditionally made tiramisu. Such a treat! Service was great, food was fast. Vibes were traditional/rustic. Just lovely.

Stopped in at this gem instead of a different place we were heading too due to the friendly owner enticing us with the lasagne special. Food was unreal, the house wine was delicious and the quaint surroundings were greatly enhanced by the engrossingly pleasant ambience.

Thank you Antonio for the great service and always finding me a table despite being last minute or weekend. This place is always busy especially during weekend as the pizza is amazingly good. Authentic, quality ingredients, good location, good prices. I wish I could have pizza almost everyday. It was initially recommended by my friend from Rome as she claims... More

I stumbled across this restaurant by accident, but I am so glad I did! The place itself is small and rustic, and has the feel of a real family run Italian trattoria. And while the ambience is fantastic, the food is even better!!! Finally *real* Italian food in the city! I cannot recommend this place (and its pizzas) highly enough!

Yep, agree with the reviewer who thought it was a little piece of Italy. The food was amazing and we went a couple a times because the kids insisted.

Found this little gem near our hotel and recommend this friendly neighbourhood restaurant. The three of us sat outside for dinner, enjoying bottles of the house wine, garlic prawns in tomato sauce, buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad, and a diavola pizza. Service was great - not pushy and available when you wanted it. We will be back to try the... More

I took my Fiancé here for a birthday dinner. My fiancé loves the old rustic look with the relaxed atmosphere environment. As you walk in, the restaurant is converted to look like you have walked in into a family owned restaurant in Italy. Even the owners greet you in Italian, but don't worry, they do speak very clear English but... More
