Generous serving sizes! Great value children's meal including a drink and gelati. It was nice to sit outside because it was very cold inside the restaurant. Lovely place for comfortable family dining.

Had an enjoyable lunch sitting outdoors. Meal was excellent and certainly one does not leave feeling hungry. We had Marinara and a snitzel and both meals were great.

We ordered in as we got in late. Food took about 60 minutes to get there and was cold when we got it. The prices are ridiculous as you pay 10 Dollars for 3 small slices of bread with cheese. The pasta was bland, overcooked and not worth a penny. Very sad as they advertise it in the room and... More

The owner/manager is really nice and friendly - has opened up early for a big group of us in the past. Food is cooked quick and fresh. Pasta is really good, happy to make adjustments to dish based on your preference. Very reasonably priced for large servings

I love me some lasagna and what I got (to be blunt) was poor, I think tasted microwaved and was over cooked. It was also very salty surrounded by a sea of oil and Cheese

We had take away but the restaurant was very nice with a lovely atmosphere . Pizza was just average although the bases were lovely. We found that the special which was Tortellini Polo was spectacular. Staff were lovely and very friendly. Give it a go......

We had wandered past here a couple of times and one night finally decided to stop for dinner. I had a blackboard special, which was absolutely delicious but so big I couldn't finish it. I was offered a doggie bag but with our days all planned there was no opportunity to eat it later. My husband also enjoyed big spaghetti... More
