The ambience was rather quiet and dull, but the decor was pleasant, and the food was great. The staff were also friendly.

Great food and great service. We did not have to wait long for our meals. I am a bit of a coffee snob and the coffee was great.

The food and service very average. The Prosecco was warm , the seafood linguine was devoid of seafood other than a few tiny shrimps; linguine under cooked. Had to ask for the garlic bread we ordered which didn’t arrive (until half way through main course)....Other pastas also average . Pizzas for kids were good. No attempt to offer more drinks and had to ask for first round. No apologies for the errors. Restaurant not busy but slow. Given the cost , average food and service - would not recommend. Locals said the usual chef was away and normally it’s better.More

We were looking for an Italian restaurant for pizza on our family holiday and I can honestly say it's the best I have ever tried. We had the tomato and basil bruschetta to start with, and everyone was blown away, including the 5 and 7...yr Olds. Followed by 3 amazing and different pizzas. I will absolutely rave about this place!! And totally recommend to all!More

Excellent range of options for pizza, pasta and salads. All very authentic and bursting with flavor.. If we lived local, this would be a definite place to frequent!

We decided by chance to visit here after being in the vacinity earlier in the day. We were not disappointed at all, from the bruschetta starter to our more than plentiful main courses of parmigiana chicken & paradelle. Our waitress, Jade, was highly attentive and...engaging, and the kitchen staff deserve high praise for the quality of their courses. Stop in here for a quality dining experience.More
