One evening in July we decided to pop in for some dinner to discover that there was a different menu with what can only be described as ludicrous prices on dishes one I recall being €18,90 for a lasagne we did not stay as...

Food was average - others had good pizzas but mine lacked topping which for €18 to have so little on a pizza which has 'a bit of everything' was a bit disappointing. The main issue was the staff - they were nice, but too slow. The restaurant was half full and even though the 2 servers were rushing around, we... More

We recently came for dinner and it was excellent! The pasta and pizza mains were delicious as were the starters. Service was efficient and prompt too.

The restaurant is very laid back and relaxed and nicely decorated. We have always enjoyed our meal. Went recently and... More

Our hotel was located outside of the city and one evening we returned before dinner and did not feel like taking the Dart back into town. We walked to the center and stumbled upon this little Italian restaurant and decided since they had pizza on the menu and we wanted a light meal that we would go in. We were... More

Manuela took excellent care of us. We enjoyed our experience so much that we went back the next night for dinner. A repeat performance by staff... More
