This Italian is on the corner of the high street and close to the train station. This is a great place to meet up with family that pop down from London on the fast train. Food is always very good, but it can get busy...More

Understandable why this place gets pretty busy. Good food and drink, served efficiently and not too pricey. A great place to pop into whenever you don't fancy cooking.
