We passed the entrance a few times before we realised there was a restaurant there! It is upstairs. Lovely room. Very busy and the food was excellent.

Very good food with exceptional service. Although no children’s menu was available, dishes can be served with smaller portions of pasta.

You might be tempted to ignore this little restaurant which is up a narrow (and somewhat dim) flight of stairs, but make the trip (and get a reservation first, if you can). We showed up on a Saturday night for an early dinner, and were...More

Had a yen for Italian and the site showed this place to be close- so glad for the recommendation. Spaghetti ragu and chicken parmigiana were our choices and loved both. Pasta with the chicken had a liberal dusting of pepper which was a nice counterpoint...More
