What a lovely please to eat. The staff (of whine there were many) were welcoming and friendly. The menu was varied but contained all you would expect from an Italian eatery. We could not fault the service - professional and friendly. The surroundings were smart...More

Sorry we just chose from menu in the cafe and as no online menu you would probably need to contact as others have suggested.
