No magic here, just a decent Italian restaurant doing things right. Basic Italian comfort food, not expensive, and plentiful. Ok, the red was very average, but the meal in general pleased us all, and clearly the locals knew of its existence too.

One thing to say about the food- get rid of the frozen calamari/ prawn dish. Not nice comparing it to fresh seafood. Apart from that our mains and service were really nice !
