I'm a big fan of this restaurant, the food is simple but done with love. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as a delicatessen on the side. It is the perfect neighbourhood restaurant with a good Italian lunch and dinner menu. Staff are keen to please but can sometimes become distracted by their numerous friends who pop in for a chat. It is an annoyance because everything else is perfect.
Well priced and a lovely evening vibe.
Long may it prosper.

I got a recomendation to go to Melanzana in Batters Sq, so dropped in over lunch to check out the deli and menu. It tastes as good as it looks! Fresh pizza was thin crust and delicious, We returned later on in the evening for a family meal and we were not disappointed. the menu is old style Italian - not trying to reinvent the wheel. Mozzarella salad was good quality. The pasta so so fresh and good ingredients could not fail, the aubergine dish (v) was delicately heavy! the ragu was intense, the crab/cherry tomato taglioni was superb as such a simple dish can go so wrong. Good house red montepulciano to cap off a great evening. have been back since.
