Stone baked pizza had very little topping and burnt in edges, pasta dish was very small and taste disappointing. Staff were friendly, however 'speaky di English, Irish or welsh' was very difficult. I would not rush back,... More

The food was second to none, and... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening as part of large family group (8 persons). Extensive menu with good choices, even on the early bird menu. Everybody was happy with their meal from one 3-year old who had pizza, to the adults. Restaurant was quite busy when we were leaving - would advise booking a table in advance. Will go... More
