Discovered this gem by accident. Ate here twice. Food was amazing. So tasty and well presented. Bruschetta was out of this world-best we’ve had yet! Pizza and pastas all made from scratch. Sauces were divine. Sangria and red wine were lovely. Staff were super friendly....More

We all enjoyed our food, especially that the pasta was fresh. If this were local to me I'd be going regularly - and work my way through the menu! We had a nut allergy in the group and this was accommodated well, and understood.

Excellent pastas and pizzas. The white sangria is outstanding and packs a “secret” punch. Nice al fresco dining canopy. Large tv which was nice for world cup games.
