Ordered the Amatriciana pasta . It was served cold. It was tasteless - the pasta was over cooked. The sauce was not representative of this great, simple, delicious dish.

In their cafe a large cappuccino is a regular size anywhere else..3.80e and served in a paper cup! Sandwich/roll/panini average 7e. High chairs n tables, and you're expected to clear your table away to the bin! Overpriced and unrelaxing.

We called in on the way home, really hungry after a few hours on the road and looking forward to a treat. The risotto was so disappointing, the rice was hard in places. I had to wait ages for it to cool down, the temperature...More
