Their food used to be very good. But they are going down. There are still some good things on the menu, but their pasta is not great anymore. Staff is the same and they are very nice and professional.

This is a lovely restaurant, decor is cool. There is a large choice on the menus for both adults and kids. They have an offer on Sunday where 1 child eats free per 1 adult which is superb value.
