Lunch for two on a Wednesday was really very very good. The food was fresh & cooked to perfection, the service was warm, pinot grigio was Italian & went well with our meal. We will be back again.

Although the initial service was slightly slower than we are used to we put this down to the restaurant being completely full of hungry guests. Once the order was placed the courses arrived a good pace for eating and relaxing.

This restaurant serves great Italian food, in a amazing trattoria setting. Meat, fish, pasta and pizza. Excellent deserts. You need to make a reservation, every table was occupied when we were there.
