small nice restaurant, offers a nice view on the street. Food is good and prices are average. The lady that served us was very kind. I had a plate of pasta (not the best sauce I have ever had). My friend said his pizza was good.

This restaraunt has to many tables crammed into a tiny place. It was so noisy that we couldn't hear each other speak. The food was overpriced and very ordinary. The staff were struggling to cope and the wait was long. Certainly would not go back. The toilets also left a lot to be desired.

We were warmly greeted and taken upstairs to an atmospheric part of the restaurant overlooking the street. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio in this nice cozy little place. The service was excellent, warm and friendly by a mother and daughter team who are excellent hosts. It was lovely to meet you both and... More

Called in on impulse, no table booked, and we were lucky to get a table. It was busy for a Wednesday evening. The atmosphere is great in this restaurant, a little music in the background downstairs, would have been nice upstairs too. I had chicken breast with creamy pesto sauce and delicious! Lemon sorbet meringue was light and yummy! Would... More

Very friendly and intimate family owned Sardinian (not Italian) restaurant. Reasonably priced food but watch the meat based pasta/pizza dishes; they can be sparse on, well, meat. Have heard a few customers complain about this to the waiting staff. The Mon-Fri two course set menu is very good value at £9.95.

Ordered four takeaway pizzas one evening. Able to pick three toppings, the lady who served us was very friendly and explained the prices/how many toppings we were allowed straight away. Prices were very reasonable and the pizzas were lovely! Thin base, right amount of cheese and toppings - tasted like good quality pizza. Vegetarian options were great also - plenty... More

Came here tonight as a surprise! Food was great, service was also very speedy. I liked that the menu and decor were authentic. I also saw a sign in the restaurant that all of its ingredients are imported from Sardinia, which if true is impressive. Price also reasonable, will be coming here again.
