The menus were tatty and plastic peeling away and think I had better seating in my school canteen! Asked for a bottle of mineral water and was served a... More

We enjoyed a lovely family meal on Fri evening - it was busy but had a good atmosphere. The staff were friendly and attentive - particularly impressed by the staff honesty as we misread the bill and initially over paid by quite alot which they checked with us - would definately visit this good value family run eatery again!

Its a small resturant and is allways busy, so i'd recoment booking if with a big group (or even with a small group). They seriously do the best pizzas in town, and the resturant has a nice comfy atmosphere which is great for the family/friends/just a quick pizza. They also do a some homemade Italian desserts which were delicious.
