Quite a nice place to hang out, nothing too festive, with really nice staff. The food portions are reasonable, the quality of food is good too - it was tasty and nicely served. I will probably be back!

My wife and I enjoyed a very pleasant meal here on a Thursday evening. Fortunately we got a table by the window which was excellent for people watching in the busy street outside. We had a sharing platter (please see photo) to start which was yummy followed by a nice pizza and salad respectively. Our waitress was lovely - very... More

Visited with friend both craving for pizza and pizzas are amazing there! Loved the base of it especially - perfect! Had no room for dessert but after looking around what other people having and seeing beautiful tasty sweet plates decided to order and oh it was definitely worth it! Left full and happy!

Walk through the entrance and greeted by sensible decent staff who know what to do when there are children involved. A good start, decent food, well served, very little waiting and very helpful staff. For what it is, this is a very decent pizza/pasta house, makes no claims to be anything but and it works.

My friend and I went here for dinner. The service was very friendly and the food came out in a reasonable amount of time. It cost me £12 for pesto penne with zucchini and chicken. The food was 3/5, but I enjoyed it. I would go back again because our waitress was really great, and it's not a terribly expensive... More

Arrived for dinner without booking and immediately we were found a pleasant table in the window. Nice relaxing atmosphere. The staff were pleasant and efficient. The food was well cooked and nicely presented. Very tasty dough balls with cheese and salami followed by pizza with plenty of topping and a crispy base. We were also given some complimentary glasses of... More
