Wonderful service! Very friendly staff and food is served rather quickly. Spacious and nice lightings. Ordered pasta and pizza. The pizza was quite a large portion for its price and was quite good.

Service attentive without being intrusive. We were looked after superbly. We were treated like family although this was our first visit. Food was better than excellent - can recommend the ravioli.
