“Nice pizza spot!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

The service was lacking and the Pizzas were good and quite big! Although I didnt try any, the cocktails at nearby tables looked good. The variety of pizzas and pastas on the menu wasnt great but the overall experience was good!

“Good value, great coffee!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

The restaurant is hard to find as it's situated on the mezannine floor, but I recommend you persevere! The pastas are big and tasty, and excellent value. Good breakfasts too. The highlight is the coffee, properly prepared (hot) and served, and really good. It's now my coffee place of choice.

“Fantastic Food! Wonderful Service!”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Absolutely fantastic! I ordered the Recco Con Gamberi, and my my wife had the Alla Mediterranea.

Recco Con Gamberi (9/10):
The pasta was perfectly Al Dente, the prawns were fresh, plentiful and absolutely delicious. My only complaint- I had asked for the chilli's to be kept to a minimum so that the dish would not be too spicy. It was still a little too hot for me. Everything else was perfect!

Alla Mediterranea (10/10)
The pasta was also perfectly Al Dente. My wife had asked for cooked mushrooms to be added and for the "chilli tossed with mascarpone cheese" to be left out. The meal was made perfectly to order and was nothing short of phenomenal! The tomatoes were juicy, the rocket was fresh, the mushrooms were well cooked, and the light drizzle of olive oil brought the meal together perfectly. Fantastic!

I will Definitely be back!
