The food here is consistently excellent. We have ate here numerous times and have never had a bad meal. Occasionally items on the menu may not be available,... More

Stumbled across this small but friendly place needing a winter warmer drink. Lovely Bailey's coffee with Christmas chat from the staff. Menu looks fab. Going to return for a meal there in the New Year.

Visited this wonderful restaurant last night, it was my first visit but definitely not my last. The food was excellent, and the best I've tasted outside of Italy. Couldn't recommend this place enough.

A friendly welcome on this winters evening by the restaurant staff. The restaurant was nice warm and cosy with a ambient lighting and ready for Christmas. There was 4 of us altogether who had Starters, Main, deserts and drinks. The food was fresh cooked to order and arrived in a reasonable expected time. Piping hot and with a greeted smile.... More

We went mid week so the restaurant was quiet, which given how good the food is was surprising. Places like this should be busier than this, the food is that good and a great price. This was some of the best Italian food we have had outside of Italy. As the food is fresh cooked you can get it with... More

You could be in a typical Italian restaurant, in Italy, including the Mama and Papa. Food and atmosphere excellent and a lot cheaper than going all the way to Italy.

Looks can be deceiving and in this case it certainly is. This cafe/ restaurant is a little jem. If you like Italian food then this one is for you. The food is cooked while you wait so don't expect to be in and out in a short time but I can say it is well worth the wait. The cheesecake... More
