We regularly buy takeout pizza/pasta from here and they are really nice. We decided to dine in. Sadly the wine waitress had no experience and wasn't able to assist us in a recommendation. We felt like a Pinot noir but nothing stood out and not...More

Lovely place to share a meal for 2. Unfortunately there is no where a little private that you can get away from big groups but the service is great and the meals are wonderful.

Visited this restaurant and was very impressed by the standard, quality and presentation of the food. The pizzas were tasty with thin crust whilst the Cypress salad was really fresh and tasty. Well recommended.

I actually think the other meals (steak, venison, pasta) were better than the pizza. The group sampled most of the desserts too, all good. Can recommend the lava cake in particular. Service was excellent. It is always great when a restaurant far exceeds expectations.

Booked online for 8 people couple hours before dining on a Saturday night. Waitress explained an hour wait for mains. Initially put off by that but ordered anyway and pleasantly surprised the wait was more like 30-40 mins. Pizza bread and wedges while we waited....More
