First of all a huge thanks to all the staff that were great with my son, really made our visits enjoyable. Food was fantastic, pizzas were first class. Also tried cannelloni and seafood linguine. Prices were very reasonable too. First class service, would highly recommend.

If you are looking for great lasagne then this place is where you need to head. Its clearly made on the premises and tastes fantastic. The service is top notch with the children encouraged to order their own food and engaged with not just left to feel like they are a spare part. Top place to eat.

My son order from... More
