Set off the road a little so get a cab who knows the venue before setting off. Italian menu with a great range, well presented and with warm and friendly staff. Try for a seat on the mezzanine level if possible.

Love the menu. Some very interesting Italian inspired dishes. Pasta dishes are superb. Good selection of wine. Location and ambience: great. It is not cheap though. Definitely for special occasions/ fine dining.

You can definitely reserve a table for two, and I imagine they could do a cake-- they have a nice dessert selection! But contact the restaurant directly to make sure they can provide what you want.
