We had a lovely Italian meal here. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, small but not cramped. The staff are friendly and is so good that you would have to book in advance at popular times.

This was an unexpected delight of a find. Great food, great atmosphere, enjoyably authentic in its Italian menu, presentation and quality. My highlight was the antipasti which was to die for in its quality, flavour and - exuberance!

We all had a lovely meal with all our 3 steaks being cooked to perfection from medium rare to well done. The restaurant was a little cold in temperature and should have had the temperature warmer before guests arrived.
