I really enjoy going to the happy hour here, it's great for students on a budget. Good pizzas and pastas, quick service, just a great little restaurant. Also if you go to squires, you can order cheap food from here and it's brilliant!

Average Italian food place was noisy as big parties were present. Wine was average and pricey however enjoyed the profiteroles for pudding!
