Our family of 6 visited on Monday for a slightly rushed dinner as my brother had to catch a train at 9pm. The place is small but the staff are wonderful. We all had starters, squid off the specials, peppers stuffed with goats cheese, bruschetta, crepe and garlic bread. We all loved it, they were all extremely tasty. We all... More

From the outside it looks quite small and nothing special. The decor is a bit... old-fashioned. But the staff and the food are fantastic. Friendly, warm, prompt. Really lovely food and atmosphere. It felt genuine, not at all pretentious. Will return.

Like most reviews you can't beat the quality of the food and service. Very friendly owners who always serve you with a smile and as most customers say the food is great with generous portions and a good verity. Just one point as someone else has commented on. The place mats need updating. They look as if they harbour food... More

Although the restaurant itself might not look that promising, the hosts were very friendly and obliging and the food was of a good standard; homely and authentic Italian; and at reasonable prices.

This Italian restaurant is run by a charming couple in a modest premises that has the ambience of a small continental cafe. I had a pasta dish and my partner had saltimbocca à la Roma. We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine and Italian coffee all at reasonable prices. The only issue for us was that the portions were very... More

Lunchtime Tuesday. The restaurant did not look overly attractive from the outside and little better from the inside.12.30 midday and no customers. Still in for a penny, we entered. Probably one of our better decisions. The hospitality of what I assume we're husband an wife owners was warm, attentive and friendly. The food is superb and reminded me of a... More

I agree with many of the reviews, this family run business is a delight. The people are so sweet and charming and the food is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. My only gripe, please buy some new table mats! I understand why and don't mind at all that the décor is a little dated but having my cutlery stand... More
