Had dinner there tonight. Service was pretty inattentive, 2nd drinks were never offered. Noticed other tables were given bread baskets, not sure if they were complimentary, but we didn’t receive one. I ordered pollo masala, it was absolutely awful. Not an Italian thing about it,...More

We stopped here for an early dinner on our way through. Since we were on the early side, it wasn't very busy, and service was fairly prompt. We started with the Aranchini Balls which were delicious, and each got a small pizza, we were both...More

A very small owner operated restaurant that has eat in and takeaway options for all their pizza and pasta. Fantastic value for money and superb food. Have dined in and taken out food from here numerous times and always has the same consistently high standard...More
