Our usual takeaway pizza place was closed, so I went to Il Fanal. Wow, big mistake. The pizza was truly terrible. It was mushroom, but if you closed your eyes and ate it you would have no idea.

Went to fanal for Chinese food and it was very good.There are a lot of Chinese restaurants around who serve only Chinese food and are by far not so good.Quality,portion and price the most expensive set menu for 2 is 14.75 for both.You will not find any place value for money as here.
