Old Italian Style

Lovely to eat in this family run Resturant, it's well run and the food is real comfort food. Always busy so you must book a table. Well worth the visit if you're in for a good solid meal. Definitely recommend.

Their reputation stretches as far afield as Durban as we travelled through South Africa! A warm friendly greeting was followed by a personal greeting by the owners and then the extravaganza of food, flavours and service began! As I write this review My taste buds cry out to return! Good old Italian food takes a lot to beat but this... More

What a combination, great food, service, excellent wine list and accommodating attitude. Nothing is too much trouble. It is not a huge restaurant so the space is maximized and the tables close together. But you will soon forget that and enjoy the authentic Italian experience and mouth watering food. The anti pasta platter is a winner.

Wonderful friendly welcome, attentive service AND great food. Love the calamari starters, mine was with chilli & garlic, his was deep fried, think he won as they... More

Love this place to bits! Feels like you walk into a tratoria somewhere in Italy, the food is is always good. I love the Calamari starter served on slivers of aubergine and butternet. Buffalo Mozzarella is always the freshest and served with plump red tomatoes. They have a good selection of Italian wines on the menu and we also some... More

I am sure that the owners are very proud of the food they serve as it seems to be their homemade specialty. Probably one of the better pizza I have had. My friend had the Ravioli and was extremely happy
