Should you choose to dine here do your taste buds a favour and have the steak and pepper corn sauce! This place is little gem. The menu overall is quite good and the prices are mid range- not a cheap eat. Staff were friendly and efficient.

Went as a treat and we were not disappointed! Ordered a quatro carni pizza each, but one would have been more than enough between us! Nice setting and great value for money.

Good for short stay and quick meal. Offers pizza, and dishes with pasta and other italian dishes. Reasonable good value a step up from fast food. You can bring your own wine. Small upstairs but has a larger area downstairs for large groups.

Went in for lunch and I was very surprised, I didn't expect it to be as nice as it was. The staff were lovely and the food was served very promptly. It's a nice cozy place.
