Have visited several times, love the seafood pizza - lovely thin base and lots of flavour. The family had an array from pasta to steak, all perfectly prepared. Service was good, but can get a little slow when there are larger groups. Well worth the visit

These guys know what pizza's should look and taste like. THE base is everything... Thin, neutral taste and supportive of the superb toppings! Friendly, professional waiters who balance homeliness with professional service. We Will go again and again.

Although we arrived at peak time (with a booking) it was a bit of a shmoozle with staff overrun and inefficient.... Once we were seated and able to attract attention the rest went smoothly. The food was above average and the pizzas excellent. The staff were friendly once they had time to breath. I'd go back!!

Fantastic service and even better food! Will most definitely be going again soon. I have been often and I have never had a bad experience. From pizza to pasta, steaks and amazing wine, anything on the menu is a must have. A guaranteed good experience!

Booking essential. Proper Italian style pizzas and other dishes. These include a decent steak, lamb knuckle and a risotto or two. Family oriented, nice ambience.

Excellent Italian restaurant, had a magnificent Pear and Walnut Salad, one of the nicest salads I've ever had! Pasta was also very good. Service was a little slow , but it was absolutely packed the night we went. Would definitely go back again

The medium-rare asked was delivered med-rare to perfection!!! A good... More
