Run by two brothers from Puglia this busy restaurant serves delicious Italian dishes, home cooking style. Great pasta dishes and also delicious pizzas are always on the menu as well as a top notch steak and veal dishes. Definitely worth repeat visits!

Worth visiting the restaurant. Gets busy so quick, which is a good sign. They certainly take time to serve the food, maybe it was just me feeling it as I went solo. But it was worth a wait. Good place to go with your partner,...More

The restaurant is not the most modern place, but the menu is very good. A lot of pasta variations can be found and they serve a good crusty nice pizza.
