The pumpkin and goat cheese Tortellini is an amazing entree !! My wife enjoyed the Marsala De Fegatini (chicken livers) also. Will def come back. Be great to try a main serving of the tortellini

I recently had a meal there again. It has been a while since we've been there as we've moved out of town. The food is wonderful and the service is still great as always. I can recommend it anytime for lunch or dinner.

The prices are really to high for what you get. Had two types of different Pasta and a garlic bread and everything wasn't really tasty at all.

Had a wonderful lunch today with my Kelvie. I had the lasagne and he had the Carbonara. Our usual Pinot Gris and Sauvignon. Service was fantastic as it always is with the lovely Maggie, the restaurant was bustling with a great lunch time vibe. Thankyou.

Fantastic authentic Italian pizza and entre . A bit disappointed with the service as we didn't get the drinks for ages and when we asked for it we got a bit of a long face. I would suggest to train up the waitresses a bit...More
