Went here with the better half of a Tuesday evening...the place was empty bar the two owners. This is to be expected after a bank holiday weekend but is such a shame...the food was OUTSTANDING. Best meal I have had in this country at a fraction of prices charged elsewhere.
Starters included...caprese salad and parma ham with fresh mozzarella. Beautiful ingredients, beautiful presentation.
Mains...both specials on the night...goats cheese tortelloni and fresh taglitelle with italian sausage, mushroom in a tomato based sauce...both were cooked to order and delicious authentic fare.
Dessert...a panna cotta to share...generous portion and smashing way to end a sublime meal.
Two coffees and two glasses of the house red...an easy drinking Italian red confirmed this as the best Italian restaurant I have visited.
Service was friendly and unobtrusive, the food speaks for itself. Overall, this was a superb experience where the food is king...I will most definitely be back and would thoroughly recommend.
