A bit hidden in a small alley. Very nice and cosy place. Friendly stuff. The house wine was great. We had anti pasti, pasta and a meat dish. All great! I'll be back!

We had lunch and the food was excellent. Simple food made from local ingredients. Clearly the staff were proud of their produce and were very helpful and friendly in their service. Would recommend for a casual meal.

I feel all the good reviews are justified. The good is ok certainly not fine dining but not lower End either. Would I come here again probably not. Nothing wrong with it and the service is brilliant. But maybe not for me
