Visited today for the first time for lunch on the recommendation of one of our party. I was delighted to see that small portions of many of the main courses were available. The Café was busy when we arrived at lunchtime, but we were warmly...More

Visited recently with family for lunch. The food was top quality - we really enjoyed a risotto and pizza. However, the service was slow and I was amazed to be charged 50p for some mayonnaise for my child's pizza! I queried it with the staff...More

I have eaten in Italians all over the world and this is by far the best. You can purchase small portions as well as bigger ones, which is great if you can't eat a massive bowl of pasta. Very reasonably priced and always clean and...More

Went on Friday night and hadnt booked but they soon squeezed us in. Good menu at reasonable prices. Lasagne excellent, Rissotto could have been creamier but very satisfactory. They offer small or normal portions for many things. Starters and puds excellent. If you do The...More
