The food here is really good. We had the Lamb meatballs, Pork Osco Bosco, Gnocchi, Scotch Beef. They were all very good. We had the Coconut Rice for dessert and it was beautifully presented. The Peanut Butter pudding was outstanding.

I headed in for a bite to eat midweek, on a friend's recommendation. The food was delicious. The menu is set up for sharing, but 2 small plates or 1 big one is like a full meal.
