But is was only pasta, and, for pasta, the price is on the high side. We came once, and were not expecting anything, so we were not disappointed, but there are other alternatives with a selection I prefer.

First of all, this shouldn’t be advertised as a restaurant. It’s a pasta place, that’s it full stop! Very “cold” atmosphere. Not cold as in temperature but, no life in it! Staff couldn’t even put the effort to acknowledge us when entered the venue. Second,...More

Really good Italian restaurant, we were a party of five and the unanimous verdict was "excellent food". Waiters could not be more friendly, and the specials are worth a very close look (and order!). Go there if you are in the neighborhood!

We have visited this restaurant on many occasions whilst in the area on business. The food is superb and the staff are very welcoming and the service is great. On most occasions we have booked in advanced as the restaurant gets busy.
