Top Class Italian Meal! Great attentive service - excellent menu and wine list. Nice ambience in the restaurant. Book a table if you like dining late....even early week it was full. Free Parking / 90 min Parking available on the street outside.

The primi (pear superb) and pastas very good (loved the carbonara) - less sure about the secondi (pork so so at best). The table we sat at was very close to another in the centre of the room (elbows almost touching). But do like the...More
