Lovely little restaurant with sand floors, great menu with lots of variety and really pleasant staff. Perfect atmosphere on a warm evening as you dine outside under the stars. We shared aracini balls and then a lamb pizza. Wine variety good too.

Hi Oscar1232011, I really need to learn not to respond to reviews during meal times - now all I can think about is the Casablanca pizza and a bread and butter pudding for dessert ... ! Thanks for the great review, delighted you enjoyed everything!
