In behind the Old Village Shops is this charming Italian Restaurant. On a wet August night with the rain coming down this warm little restaurant with candles flickering could have been Italy anywhere. Food was exceptional and the menu has variety.

The food was excellent. The four of us all had different pasta dishes. Everything was so fresh. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was lovely, we sat at the rear of the restaurant by the water feature and it was very pleasant.
