A small recently refurbished place. Well worth visiting. We had a table of 8 and they offered us their upstairs private function room. Great place for a family get together.

Loved this place! Real Italian food. Forget Lygon St this is the real deal. I had the gnocci bolognaise and my partner had the chicken tirolesi, both were sublime. What's also great is that they do glutin free food for 95% of the dishes.Really enjoyed the atmosphere and Franco the owner's walm welcome.
