On the strength of the reviews here we went up the road to this new local restaurant to see if we agreed. We never went to the previous Italian restaurants on this site - put it down to bad experiences a long time ago and negative reports from friends. So we were dubious.
However it was a very pleasant experience. The service was charming, if a trifle over-attentive, but that's a good fault. The Parmigiana ordered by my mother, who orders it wherever she sees it on the menu, and who dines out at Italian restaurants regularly, was pronounced possibly the best she'd ever had (although she left the inexplicable side order of spaghetti - bit odd...) Pizza and pasta was lovely, well-cooked, well-seasoned and with a flavoursome green salad. My 15 year old, not very hungry, daughter asked if she could order from the children's menu, which was generous.
GREAT COFFEE - smooth, rich and just the right temperature!!!! This may seem like a small thing to many others out there, but for someone like me and my partner, it is amazing how often a good meal is ruined by mediocre coffee. Too often it is an afterthought, yet this is the memory that lingers in the mouth when you leave.
I hope they do well - they deserve to. We shall definitely be back. Another good local restaurant minutes walk from our home.
