The food that we ordered was good. Hubby loved the lasagne, i enjoyed cannloni. Desert 1 gelata good 1 tiramisu ok. I was disappointed they do not sell Italian wine by the glass. A reasonably priced menu with a cafe atmosphere.

Visited Monday: great, very friendly German waitress, fantastic attentive professional service. Food: Pizza Napoli, quantity and quality of toppings was ok. Base was nice thin and crisp however the topping was overcooked, the cheese had turned all brown and crisp. The fettuccine alla panna were well received. I tried the tiramisu and it was lacking the coffee flavour and liqueur... More

Loved the choices on the menu & the Carbonara was outstanding! The air-conditioned restaurant is small & friendly, the waitress kept our cold water topped up & the chef even came to see if we were happy with our meal. A fabulous atmosphere with great food.

Nothing fancy, just very good food with a friendly staff. The caprese was excellent. My wife's pesto dish was really good (I sneaked a bite) and my veal was perfect. Highly recommended.

Quickly popped in to order some takeaway pizzas and garlic bread. Took a bit longer despite restaurant being quiet, but so worth it! Some of the better takeaway pizzas we have had and won't hesitate to come back again!

My husband and I came here for New Year's Eve Dinner. We both had a main chicken dish, they were both very good, but the mushroom and bacon chicken was wonderful. The tiramisu though was so velvety and nice. I would definitely recommend it.
