Ate here and was not disappointed. Decor and atmosphere great, service was wonderful, knowledgable and informative. Wine glasses were huge and lovely to drink the suggested red wine. Gnocchi, cannelloni were the best we have eaten. Worth a visit.

Wife and I enjoyed a lovely diner here on the terrace. A tasting plate of fish dishes was our starter and it got better from there. Great food, wine and service

Very good food, lamb shank excellent, pannacotta best I've ever had. Reasonably priced and very welcoming and efficient staff who were working extremely hard. Very popular as many people were being turned away whilst we were eating. Unlikely to get a table unless you book.

We liked the food very much, service was attentive but slow. Be aware, the view outside isn't pretty but if it doesn't bother you would recommend outside seating.
