Friendly attentive staff, but above all, great pizzas and pasta. Walk just a few extra metres past Pizza Express - you won't regret it. (The house red is recommended)

Gamberoni Siciliani: Sicilian prawns on some tagliolini Tagliolini al Cartoccio: a myriad of shellfish, cooked in a bag and serves with a thicker pasta. Both are out of this world, go here!
