Service very good. The Gnochhi was very tasty and plenty of it. The pulled pork sliders though were not pulled apart and were chunks with lots of fat.

Disappointed to hear that your experience and meal was not satisfactory- this was relayed back to the kitchen and we hope in the future you will consider us and come back in.
