We turned up at 7.30pm on a Saturday without having booked - no problem, seated quickly and had one of the best Italian meals in a long time. Food, service and ambience of the highest quality. Well worth a visit for the Calzone alone. Reasonable prices but top quality. Highly recommended.

There is a free parking lot directly across the street which makes things easier. Offers GF pasta, which was delicious, with lots of other options for Vegetarian or Carnivores. It's not a huge place, so recommend making a reservation.

Whenever we want a nice meal out that's local we always visit this restaurant. The service is always perfect and so is the food!

We decided to take a spontaneous lunch at this restaurant. Inviting from the outside and clean and tidy within. Having looked at the menu in the window it was clear there was a varied range of dishes. Unfortunately my dining experience was spoiled by the very disinterested, even grumpy, waiter. No smile whilst taking order; he certainly wasn't rushed as the place was empty. He seemed almost annoyed when we asked for only tap water and not wine and snatched the wine menu away fairly sharply. Food arrived - again no smile or any interaction really. Food was average - didn't make me want to return, but wasn't terrible either. When we left, there wasn't even a goodbye or thank you for custom. Fair value for money, but you probably could get value elsewhere - I will not return.
