I had set menu with starters, main and dessert for 26e. Muscles in white wine were nice. Risotto main and Panna cotta dessert were excellent.

Quite a small place but this is what makes it great. Gets very busy so we were lucky to get a walk in. We had probably the best calamari we've ever had as a starter! Had sea bass off the specials menu for main which was also delicious and some pretty good red wine.

Calamari was exquisite; tender with a nice crispy coating. We all enjoyed our homemade pasta dishes. Make a reservation!

Busy small Italian restaurant. Very friendly. Good value whether you are on the set menu or a la carte. Quite compact as the tables are close together but it was ok. Enjoyed all the food, portions were good. The only tiny point was that the veal could have been tenderer. Flavours made up for that. Very good wine by the... More

I visited here for my anniversary dinner with my partner and was blown away. There are inside and outside options for seating, we sat outside because it was a warm evening but could still hear the music and feel the atmosphere coming from within. The food was incredible and the staff attentive, what more do you need! 10/10.

Ate here on Good Friday - was looking for a nice Italian restaurant that felt individual rather than part of a chain. This place lived up to expectations - the food and wine was great and there was a lively buzzy feel about the place. Staff were very friendly and helped make it a good atmosphere.

Small Italian restaurant but with true and well prepared and presented Italian food and a vast collection of very fine wines. As in most Italian restaurants staff is always very friendly, active and participator.

Very good Italian. We went early and got in, but plenty of people were turned away at the door, so make a reservation.. it's a small place and felt very authentic. Given the number of Italians in the place, this makes sense. Spicy prawn, sausage ragu, eggplant - all v.g.
