From the outside this restaurant looks like a time warp but step inside and try the food. OMG this is the real deal. No fancy fusion help just the best italian home cooking this side of Naples. Service was fast and professional, this is a restaurant at the top of its game. We loved it!

This is a lovely small Italian restaurant which has a really nice menu and everything was beautifully cooked. I had the liver to start, absolutely gorgeous I cannot recommend this enough. The salmon pasta was also a winner. The staff are nice and friendly and dealt with a difficult customer with great finesse. You will not regret eating here.

We read the reviews on TA and decided to give it a go. We arrived without a reservation on Friday night and were greeted by friendly staff. We like Italian food and been to some good restaurants, but I have to say this was the best that we have tasted. The food was fresh, hot and flavoursome. They also make... More
