We came here via a recommendation in Fred Plotkin’s “Italy for the Gourmet Traveller”. The service couldn’t have been friendlier, but the food, apart from a couple of stand-out dishes, was average to disappointing. The highlights of our meal were the excellent lasagne served as...More

Lovely atmosphere, food good but not outtanding. Not quite the setting, regrettably, for a quiet and uninterrupted evening. The wait staff hovers incessantly, we were interrupted not less than a dozen times.
