We have tried this restaurant a few times. The veal special was tough. Wasn't allowed to order bread and olives with drinks, we were told they had to be ordered when ordering starters and mains. Average overall.

Went here on Friday night for a treat and boy was it! Very friendly and happy staff looked after us. The food was superb especially the calf liver and the bread and butter pudding😄😄😄. Thank you so much for our lovely relaxing evening.

Italian owners, atmosphere and cuisine. Staff could not have been more friendly and were exceptionally welcoming and polite. Would go here again and again. As someone who visits Italy a lot I can say this is authentic Italian.

A great vibe and lovely friendly service. The food was delicious and authentically cooked unlike the chain 'Italian' restaurants found in all uk towns! A wide choice of dishes and lots for meat eaters and vegetarian. Puddings are tasty and not bought in. Looking forward to our next visit ~ Yum!

It's my first time here and I have to say I really enjoyed it. The outside facade doesn't just any justice to what's inside. As soon as we stepped in, it felt like we're in Italy, the simple and minimalistic design of the place with the beautiful wall paintings by the owner herself is gorgeous.
