Good Honest Italian Fare

I enjoyed my meal here a lot. It was a classic Italian menu with all the classics and I really recommend their Pizza's and Pasta. Great place for a romantic evening.

Had the chicken burger and it was delicious and bigger than your normal burger! Service was good. Will definitely eat there again!

First visit coffee & muffin courtesy of a friend. Following week & again a couple of weeks later stopped for lunch, good omelettes. Beer not cold enough but the wine was better for some ice.

Good hearty Omelette, they don’t skimp on the fillings. Was totally and utterly stuffed, was good value for money. Good service and is located in a better, less noisy part of the mall in my opinion.

I was visiting from the US and popped in here for breakfast. I have to say their Italian Breakfast was possibly the best breakfast I've had in my life, and their espresso-based coffee beat anything I've had in New York in the last year- it was so good I bought a kilogram of beans on the way out, and I'm...
