One of my favourite places to visit, I wondered if they could cope well with a larger crowd. Orders taken in a timely manner. I did have to return my soup as it was lukewarm at the most. Received it back nearly 10 mins later...More

Excellent Italian, very busy when we went and obviously popular with locals as well as tourists. Wide selection of Italian food and not just usual pastas and pizzas although they do that as well
