We ordered a starter that had aubergine; and it was amazing. We had penne arabiatta; it was also very delicious.

rather basic interior, nice terrace. Very friendly owners and staff. We had a very good Tagliatelli Trattoria: made with Calvados at the table in a bowl of Parmezan. Mains were an average good risotto and a perfect sea bass in saffran sauce.

Great service, reasonable prices and fantastic food. If you're up for a show order the house signature dish where the chef comes out and prepares it for you at the table, very fun. I went with my father who will invariably order a tiramisu if...More
