The food was wonderful, great choice on the menu. Very accommodating service especially as we had small impatient children! Lovely staff, friendly patrons :)

I ate the crab and fresh tomato & chilli spagetti and it was very plain at the table. Then the next day I had horrific stomach pains and was in the bathroom all day.

Great food, not fast, but fresh and with great service - again. Meat, fish, risotto all really good. If you want chain style pizza go elsewhere.
