A tiny restaurant in the most unlikeliest of places. It has very friendly service. Nice touches including bruschetta when we sat down and lemon sorbets at the end. The Sicilian shared starter featured the best caponata I've ever had. Pasta dishes were excellent and as...More

After reading reviews we decided to give it a go. Sorry but we felt rushed, service was a bit impatient and my main, fillet of beef was very chewy and gristley. Didn't finish the meal and wouldn't bother going back

A little nice small restaurant tucked away on not so busy street. Glad that we made a reservation as we get a table outside in a nice setting as we see them turning customers away. They were booked out. Loved the seafood soup!
