Fresh food with great specials. Staff are very friendly without being in your face. The food is cooked to order so expect to wait between courses. The wine list is wallet friendly. If you like Red wine try the Nero davola. Really good.

An enjoyable lunch with the poached egg in Parma Ham with crostino and Parmesan Cream, which is small but beautiful. My Sicilian Orange Salad was very nice but not a main course. There were far too many oily croutons; why not some tasty, nutty small...More
