Small delicious menu. Personal service and quaint intimate environment. But the items are expensive for simple food - could be priced better as there are other Italian places just as good not so overpriced.

I went for lunch - Enrico recommended the Parma cigars for starters, the ravioli for main followed by a chocolate salami for desert. Served with a Chianti it was divine and just what we wanted

Osteria, food cooked with passion and overseen by the owner. Real Italian trattoria feel.
Exceptional antipasti real Italian hams, fresh pasta with amazing sauces. Veal was a bit disappointing, great taste but served as it is with nothing extra. Did say the veal meat balls were very good but we didn’t try those.
You need to book as the place is tiny and

Eaten here many times and this small authentic Italian restaurant never disappoints.
Fantastic basic Italian food served by people that care and they get every dish right every time.
Not surprising that it is always full.
