The blue cheese fettucine dish is superb and also the Carbonara fettucine is delicious and is always hard to decide which one to have. The garlic mussels grilled with cheese are mouth watering. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly.

Family meal for 4 to celebrate a birthday. Great service, friendly and unpretentious. Eye fillet was cooked exactly to order and meltingly tender as was the lamb. Pastas were generous and delicious. We are never disappointed with the food here. Keep up the great job.
