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

Found this establishment by pure chance after the last 2 places were booked out. Comfortable seating inside and out. Comprehensive menu with a variety of pasta, pizzas and meat dishes and kids meals.

Went here with big group of people. It was recommended by local guy. Some of our group ate pizzas and I took Warm Chicken Salad. Food was quite good, salad was bit too spicy but quite good still. Pizzas seem to be popular among our group although I tasted my sons pizza and it was way too salty. Our group... More
