We loved this small restaurant full of locals in the very centre of town. The pasta Norma was delicious and the calamari was also good. Service was efficient. We thought this was very good value. The interior was cool.

We just stumbled on this this little gem when we were touring around. Loved the eggplant parmigiana and a pasta with broccoli and ricotta. Had the house red which was just fine. It’s not gourmet but nice for lunch and you can typically find people...More

Delicious food & lovely service! The waitress & waiter were so smiley and lovely. Food was excellent and came quickly. Very fair price too. Best thing was the decor and generally trendy feel

Came across this place the other evening, really great dinner, would recommend. The aubergine starters were delicious and we had pasta for main, too stuffed for anything further. Good value for money
