Went for an early lunch and just got a table for 2 due to reservations. Managed to sit outside, which is a wonderful area on a sunny day. The food was very good.

Never failed yet with their fresh food and helpful friendly service. The food reinforces memories of real local mediterranean experiences. Staff helpful. Not cheap but value for money. On a sunny day just perfect.

3 of us had a thursday lunch. We did not have a booking but we were able to sit at a nice table in the sun. There were gluten free options. We tried the meatballs in chocolate sauce as an entree. Then had the terrine, ravioli and gorgonzola salad. The desserts were delicious.

I met a friend here for dinner - the dining area is very small so you need to be there early to get a table for dinner as they don't take bookings. The menu is heavily Italian-focused with some delicious-sounding thin crust Italian pizzas. We were able to order a half and half pizza to share, which was amazing and... More

We stumbled across this place when walking by and were so pleased we went in. Apart from the interesting range of food items to buy there is the cafe side. The coffee was the nicest We have had in a very long time and the food is great. Menu options are typically european and there are options for takeaway pizza.... More

Small menu but stunning food each time. Best gluten free pasta and very good pizza. The dessert cabinet and their home made gelato are highly recommended.
