My daughter and I enjoyed a fantastic three course lunch in relaxing authentic surroundings. Not only was the food tasty and moreish (especially the ricotta cheesecake - we wish we had the recipe!) but the service was attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommended.

Such a charming place & the food - it was magical. The ricotta on our dessert looked as a snowflake... Definitely a memorable tasteful experience. :)
