I've been supporting La Piovra now for the last four years, and have never been disappointed. From the pasta to the pizza. Well priced, excellent value for money. Would definitely recommend going here for a great pasta or pizza meal.

It is like being in Italy. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you is made to feel very welcome. The food is just like mama's cooking.
