What a great dinner and delightful staff! We both had the twice cooked goats' cheese soufflé with rocket pear and Parmesan salad. Full of flavour and great value for money. And a delicious affogato followed. Would come back again in a heartbeat!

Enjoyed my meal. Have been here many times and menu is pretty much the same doesn't change. Food is consistently good.. You have a good choice with pasta, pizzas and nice mains. Staff nice welcoming overall pleasant experience. Restaurant can get quite noisy with kids so not idea for a romantic meal.
