Real Italian friendly bright compact restaurant. Delicious fresh food, the tomato & basil soup was to die for & good portions too! Great spot for lunch or a casual evening meal.

Homemade pasta is very good. I had pasta with mullet, a beautiful sauce and peas. It was all very good, my only gripe was that the portion size was too small for me.

After five days journey around Irland, this was a relief! Wonderful food, and nice service. We strongly recommend the seats at the bar, facing the making of a good italian dinner. We loved it!

Really friendly little restaurant/wine bar hidden away from the sea front. Doesn't get too full and has a really intimate feel. Highly recommend the food.
