We had swordfish here and it was absolutely lovely. Do not understand reviews that hosts were noisy as we found them welcoming and kind. Loved it here!

Very interesting thing happened to us. We have been there twice. First time was outstanding and the portions were big, we even got another pasta, because it was so good.

Good seafood pasta, good pizza, nice location and friendly staff. Though it is a busy place, so the staff are hard to get hold of!
