First off, there was one thing that was disappointing. We went here two night in a row while we were on vacation. Both times that were were seated, we were not offered a wine menu, while all around us, everyone else was. First time, no big deal, as we were not having wine that night. Second time up, ok, what's this all about? Are they out of wine? And the hurried, somewhat brusque attitude of our server put me off from anything more involved, like asking for a wine menu. I pointed this out to the hostess as we were leaving. and she was very apologetic, and was surprised that we had not even been asked, let alone given, a wine menu. Consider this an FYI if you are seated without a wine menu..
Now, on to the better part. First visit, my wife and I shared the Margherita pizza.This pizza was a winner, we like the classic pairing of pizza sauce and Mozzarella, simple and delicious.
Second night, we went all out, with myself dining on Caesar salad, the classic, with seasonal leaves with bacon, grated parmesan, Spanish onions and garlic croutons
with Caesar dressing. It was a winner, enough garlic to enjoy the taste, without being overpowering.
My wife chose the Caprese Salad, sliced buffalo mozzarella and beef tomatoes
with basil leaves, drizzled with a balsamic reduction.
Both salads were perfect, onto to the mains.
I chose the Chicken Fiorentina , Chicken in a white wine and cream reduction, infused with spinach, field mushrooms, garlic and chopped Spanish onions, served with penne pasta and topped with fresh grated parmesan cheese.
My wife opted for Penne with Aubergine & Goat’s Cheese, chunks of aubergine and goat’s cheese and roasted garlic cloves tossed in a tomato balsamic sauce.
They were delicious, and left us to filled for dessert.

We showed up late prior to a concert and Michelle kindly went out of her way to accommodate us and let the kitchen know we were in a hurry. Great food, staff and service :)

We had been in Ireland a few days and wanted a break from pub grub. We found this restaurant by accident and were lucky to get a table. The service was friendly and efficient and the food was wonderful. Lovely fresh tomato bruschetta, chiclen wings with plenty of flavour and a great pizza.
