One of our favourite restaurants. Food is always beautiful and surroundings are sumptuous. We were a bit worried when we found out they were relocating to a bigger premises, that it may lose its quaint charm. We needent be, it’s still fabulous!

As we stepped through the doors on a cold winter evening it was like being transported to Italy. We'd made a booking, realising it was popular, and were whisked upstairs to a table by the window. Glimpses of the river would be stunning in summer...More
