My partner and I visited here on a Saturday night and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, the staff were very friendly and it was reasonably priced. We will definitely go back. It's not on the main road so some people may miss it...More

We last visited Pietro and his team early in August. The food, as always lived up to expectations. Pietro is a master at making a fantastic sauce. Whatever we choose, we are never disappointed. Thanks again. We will be back!
