This is a local restaurant for me. I took my visiting family who were delighted with their meal saying it was one of the best Italian meals they had had.

Not only did they agree to serve us minutes from kitchen closing time, the service was still fantastic and the food was fresh and arrived promptly. I can recommend the lasagne, and the calzone!

We ate here with our children midweek at 6pm - we were shown straight to a table and a drinks order taken shortly afterwards. The staff were good with our children and orders were taken quickly and efficiently. The wait for our food was a touch on the long side but when it arrived it was well presented and very... More
