The restaurant was really nice, we were lucky to get in before kitchen closing time. The food was fab especially pasta and pistachio ice cream. Front of house was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back again.

I'm unsure however if you look the restaurant up online. I'm sure they'll have their opening and closing times on their web page. As it may change seasonally depending on busy times.

I am unsure but you could call and ask, or see if they have a menu online. I'm sure they would accommodate a request if they don't have it on their menu. Hope this helped ;)
