If your looking for a great place to dine, book a table here. The staff are exceptional, food was amazing and the service was great. We had two entrée's to share (calamari and a peppered tuna carpaccio), mains (special risotto and roast pork) and a dessert, Affogato, to share.
Everything about this little piece of Italy is amazing.

Food was excellent in this tiny bolt hole restaurant. Unfortunately the service was very slow, we waited 30 minutes just to give our food order. After we finished our first course it took more than an hour for the main course to come. What was really annoying was the lack of an explanation. They did offer us a free glass of wine for our wait, but still no apology or explanation. We would return and hope the service issue is sorted out.

We came here by chance on a Saturday night. We didn't have a booking but the waiter said they had a cancellation and we could get a table.

Wow! What a place. The restaurant has great ambience, fantastic music, excellent staff and the food......well it's delicious. The gnocchi was excellent, the fettuccine delicious and the penne a very close third place. No, I didn't order all three dishes myself - it was so good our party of three all gave a taste of our dish to each other.

It was such a great night. You just don't get service like we did here at many places: warmth, helpful and an obvious genuine love for their restaurant.

So a few days later we went back. And it was again fantastic.

Book a table and eat here. You won't be disappointed.
