Tiramisu should be coffee flavoured...it wasn't. There was so much booze in it that it was soupy in the bottom. They don't have trim milk and they don't have sugar substitutes. We were the only ones there and that's probably a good thing because the...More

Pizzeria Da Francesca is a really good wood fired thin and crispy Italian pizza. We also got the potato skins- really delicious. Good bar selection and a fantastic staff. The interior is beautiful- brick walls and ornate trim and ceilings.
