Weel cooked and inspiring dishes. Plenty of food per serving. A decent wine card. The price range is also fair.

Absolutely wonderful food - all with a ‘little special’. Don’t judge the book by its cover. Much higher quality than you’d expect from the interior. Highly recommendable!! Great service. Must try!

Went to this restaurant on a business dinner. A 5-10 minute walk from city center and town hall. Menu largely Italian dishes and fish. We sat outside as it was good weather. Service ok and cooperative staff, but the food is average at best. Fish...More
