Unfortunately disappointed with the pizzas - although nice base and sauce, the milanaise pizza had no chorizo very sparse with the ham. Very over priced. It is a shame - when we visited another night the food was delicious and enjoyable.

This menu is rather expensive but unfortunately the food doesn't quite justify the prices. With some very good places to eat in the locality, for a lot less, to charge this kind of money the fare really needs to be outstanding. Unfortunately it isn't. The...More
