First time at this cozy little restaurant having heard good things about it. We were not disappointed. Lovely welcome and exemplary customer service. The food was amazing and it's excellent value for money. Beats the "fast-food" Italian chains like Prezzo by miles!

We came here a little while ago now. Staff were really friendly however the good wasn't great. Pasta was quite stodgy, mushrooms very oily/greasy and unfortunately our waiter didn't know what was in the pate "just normal pate..."!!?

This is a lovely family run resturant. It isnt a huge place so I'd recommend booking at weekends to avoid disappointment. The food is amazing and we will Def be going back with family and friends. You do have to wait a little for your food. Though it really is well worth the wait, plus I like knowing it is... More
