Lovely ambient, very good service and yummy food and wine. The clam and prawn linguine is strongly recommended, the clams used are the biggest we have seen so far, prawn are so fresh they crunched between your teeth, the duck Ragu are well cooked and delicious. Definitely a restaurant to frequent.

We had Scallops and Arancini for entree. The scallops were fabulous and well matched with the pork belly, fennel and apple. My arancini was a little disappointing, a bit... More

The vegetarian menu was fairly standard, not very original or indeed inspiring ... no matter though if the quality of the food is high! However, unfortunately our entire vegetarian experience was underwhelming & rather 1970ish; surely there are more modern, fresh-tasting options available for chef ... perhaps a visit to Italy is required?? Service was friendly enough but strangely formal... More

This restaurant has a warm and cosy atmosphere and the staff is very attentive. We began with the rosemary and garlic focaccia which is actually two small but thick slices served with evoo an balsamic vinegar - delicious. My husband had the slow cooked duck ragout which he loved and I had the roasted butternut pumpkin risotto. I love pumpkin... More

Despite 'walking in' we were made welcome by friendly happy staff. The pasta dishes were fresh, generous and packed with flavor. A relaxing environment with a good wine selection. Loved it!

We ate dinner here on 2 different nights. On the first evening the service was slightly inattentive, however on the second evening the service was a lot better - very attentive and warm. The focaccia dipped in local olive oil and balsamic was to die for. The pasta dishes were great. The only let down was the chicken carbonara special.... More
