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 welcomed and given menus. All the food was hot, tasty and well presented. We were a bit disappointed to find that they had no ice cream, despite offering various sundaes as dessert.

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 member who seemed surprised and stated that they charge for all condiments!! I feel that this is far too much for a bit of mayo - maybe next time I'll bring my own!

Myself and my family have eaten here a few times and the food is always of a good standard. The pasta dishes are tasty and are served in generous portions too. The pizza was somewhat bland with tasteless cheese and sparse in toppings but the desert menu made up for it. Nice selection of drinks, cocktails and even some local craft ales. The staff have always been fantastic and very friendly which is always great to see. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting authentic Italian cuisine in a pleasant surrounding.
