Filippo will leave no stone unturned to make you feel welcome into his little piece of Italy that is his restaurant. His unique idea is to feature beautiful classical and operatic music and if you are very fortunate he may also serenade you along with the meal.

I have regularly been to this wonderful restaurant and the owner Filippo and his wife are wonderful managers there; the food is fantastic and very low priced compared to many other restaurants. As it is so popular I recommend that you always phone and make a booking to be able to attend having a wonderful meal there.
