I had the pork panini - delicious, crispy - a treat for your senses plus it comes with tiny roasted potatoes that melt in your mouth. Great value for a sit-down restaurant with excellent quality.

Met friends for lunch. Glad I made a reservation as the place was full. Very good wine list. Interesting appetizer of chard stem in a tempura batter. Gnocchi was good. Salad was simple but really tasty. Excellent service. Creative menu with good vegetarian options.
