This was the second time we have eaten here and both times we were very impressed with the service and food. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this restaurant for family and couples. Thank you for a lovely night. £87 for four people which included a bottle of red wine and beers.

A small, discrete Italian restaurant tucked into a long row of high street shops. Very welcoming even if you haven't booked (which is always recommended as it gets very busy, very quickly) Early evening special menu between 5-7pm Food always hot & great tasting. Never have to wait long even at its busiest time. Rate this very highly. Get yourselves... More

I had the seafood pancake to start, followed by the salmon tagliatelle. The portions were a very good size and I believe that the tagliatelle was the nicest I have ever tasted. Therefore, when I became full (halfway through my main course), I carried on eating and couldn't seem to stop!! With hindsight, I should have asked for half if... More

Had the early bird menu which is very good value for money. The homemade pate was delicious and the lasagna was also just as good. You can tell this place is traditional and food is fresh. Would recommend

Have been eating here for about 20 years, and the standard is consistently excellent! The menu is varied, and the service very friendly - we are always made to feel welcome. Many thanks!
