I visited this restaurant with my 2 girlfriends ..one of which was celebrating a birthday . They only had the late night menu available but we were just looking for apps anyways. We split the bruschetta plate along with the potato crisps to start. The bruschetta plate was great .. perfect sized bread pieces ... delicious spreads to top yourself... More

I liked it there, the service was good and so was the food for acceptable prices. All of the waiters and bartenders were extra nice and helpful, I will definitely return here more often. i noticed also a lot of family people with kids and young crowd dinning side by side. I guess that shows the variety of people that... More

An appetizer and salad provided lots of food for a dinner. Just left room for dessert. I had a chocolate torte with a generous helping of delicious tart raspberry coulis and whipping cream. The torte was not sweet, just rich and chocolatey. Everything was perfect.

Nice rustic feel with exposed brick. Menu is casual but a bit different. Food was great. If I had to complain I'd say the service was a tiny bit slow but it was busy. Service was nice and friendly.

No matter what I order, it is delicious, fresh and described perfectly in the menu. Waitstaff were completely accommodating to some dietary restrictions, and really knew the menu. Go back here in an instant.

Love eating here! Yummy food and very dependable. The staff is always pleasant and accommodating. The lamb shank is very good and the antipasto platter excellent with home made shortbreads.
