A small restaurant with a big menu. We had the best pasta I've had in a while. I got the Spaghetti Carbonara which was amazing. Staff was very attentive.

Service very attentive and friendly, food arrived promptly, Pizzas were OK, main courses were OK. Dessert menu a bit lacking but maybe that's the Italian way. Place looked a bit empty and lacking in athmosphere. Good reviews but lacked a bit of spark for me....More

The staff were friendly but the food miss the spot. I ordered the lasagne which was mainly ragu and a modest amount of pasta. While the staff were friendly we were waiting for cutlery and the bill and it seemed that possibly they were understaffed....More
