This is our local Italian Restaurant - always receive good service here in relaxed surroundings - best to sit near the windows. We have our favourites on the menu and are never disappointed.

Great Italian food - pasta and pizza with good selection of wines. Did not book as it was a Wednesday night but it was quite full. Service was very good and the food was delicious.
