Visited twice now. Both times excellent friendly service. Nice fresh ingredients. Butchers bacon and sausages. Great choices on menu for breakfast and lunch or just snacks. Definitely recommend a visit to this family run business.

Met some friends for a late lunch. Food was excellent; fresh with homemade dessert. The service by the owners and staff was outstanding. More seating is available at the back now which was private and relaxing.

We had a superb meal last night, Luca and Enzo certainly know how to prepare delicious Italian food and serve it in a warm friendly atmosphere. The place is spotlessly clean and deserves every one of those 5 stars.

They cater for vegetarians so if you let them know in advance I'm sure they can accommodate vegan too .
