We have been regular customers over the last 18 months and it is got better and better and busier and busier. The crab soup, if its on as a special, is fantastic and the pizzas the best in the local area (and recently got thinner and better). Service is generally quick and good and when very busy there is an... More

We ordered a take out last night. Two pizzas and two chips. The pizza base was good, thin and well cooked, however I have never seen so little topping on pizzas. My wife had vegetarian, 3 slices of courgette, 3 roast peppers and 2 mushrooms, I had pepperoni and chilli, some of my slices had no chilli or pepperoni on.... More

Pizzas hand made and with decent bases - but a little tasteless overall I thought. But it was a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere and we had a good meal overall. 'Good Caprese' says the son.

The food was excellent and we were able to order variations from the menu. Everything was freshly prepared and there was lots of choice, including some really nice specials. Please visit this restaurant if you are in the... More

The food here was reasonable priced and very nice however the restaurant was let down by very slow service. It took over 20 minutes to bring some olives which being cold could have been brought over almost straight away. The main course took even longer to arrive. I really can't fault the food though, shame to be spoilt by the... More

Also im not sure on the idea of allowing... More

We have noticed this restaurant when passing by but never tried it. Last night we called in, on the off chance, to see if they had a table for two. How lucky we were. The restaurant was buzzing with diners and people were waiting for larger tables to become free. Our starter, main and home made ice cream were delicious.... More
