My wife had spaghetti vongole which she described as excellent. Both were washed down with a new Zealand Pinot Noir (my wife always prefers red) which accompanied the fish very well Both of us went... More

The food was lovely and the service very friendly. Ambiance of ground floor level (especially the lighting) has room for improvement. One would expect table cloths or at least place mats at a place where the menu is a-la-carte!! Room downstairs (basement level) has a cosier feeling and complete with tablecloths plus here the lighting is perfect!!

Food and service excellent and nicely presented. Restaurant is small and was just filling up as we left, suspect it could get loud once full.

We ordered one portion seafood pot supposedly containing clamari rings. However the actual pot didn't have any clamari except mussels clams and 4 medium prawns. Upon telling the waiter... More

I chose the duck ravioli, which was gorgeous, and my other half had the lovely beef carpaccio. Both of us had the fish, and the desserts we... More
