Good service, nice decor in a nice street of trendy restaurants. Good interesting pizzas and pastas that are a higher class mix of ingredients than the average Italian. Nice choice of specials. Certainly a good option for food in a relaxed and friendly restaurant

Chose based on them having vegetarian options on the menu as we were walking past, the place was fairly busy and had a good vibe. Food and service were excellent, very friendly staff. Bread with oil / balsamic was delicious. Great value too.
