Excellent food with a menu that encompasses meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, all freshly cooked. Great ambience and very friendly service from this family run restaurant.

Vegetable soup followed by gnocchi to die for! A magically filling teapot. A perfect host in Massimiliano who is a sympathetic listener of stumbling Italian. Squisito! Not to be missed.

Lovely authentic Italian food and friendly welcoming Italian owner. Not cheap but well worth paying that bit extra for. Service quick and efficient. Not open on Mondays and Tuesdays, best to book.

They don't have a children's menu persai but I have taken young children in and they do smaller portions for children but it's best to go there when they open at 18.30.
