We are on our way home to Essex after a day out in the area today and so happy we booked this restaurant. Was the perfect end to the day. We have been to Italy quite a bit and this meal was so authentic and delicious. It was just as good as many we have had in Italy. They were... More

It started badly when we were shown to our table by the sulky maitre d in a dirty shirt. We were shown to the back of the restaurant next to unsightly cardboard boxes. We both felt like walking out there and then. I wish we had, the food was awful, the wine overpriced and the staff had a don't care... More

Nice little authentic Italian restaurant. Unassuming on the outside but very traditional and quaint. Food is authentic and homemade, service is good and has a very laid back Italian way. Very much enjoyed and was surprised at its authenticity!

We ate here for a quick lunch. Service was very attentive and the spaghetti with garlic and chilli was incredibly generous on the garlic and very tasty!
