The restaurant is one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to, their food is always fresh and always up to standard. The waiters are friendly and the owner is lovely. Their lasagna is out of this world and their pizza's are crispy and flavorful....More

Great for couples or larger groups. Pizza is quality. Their Greek salad is also excellent, although big enough to share. New favourite eaterie for the evening.

Excellent Italian restaurant. Lasagne was one of the best I have ever tasted! Nice terrace. Staff very professional and friendly. Obviously popular with locals - always a good sign

Food is always good - but not exceptional - they unfortunately do not use cloth serviettes like they used to - now using the cheapest thinnest paper ones. Winter time - cozy fire. Unfortunately do not make their great chicken liver pate anymore.
