Il Focolare offers excellent pasta and meat dishes. The steak we got had really good flavour and the ragu was exceptional. The restaurant is simple and local but the food is top class and at very reasonable prices.

Fantastic little place very popular with the locals, specialising in steaks, which are done the traditional way (look out for the "tagliata" which is Italian for sliced steak). Service is a little slow but well worth the wait

I suggest that this restaurant is the equivalent of a fine-dining, truck-stop. The food is fine - it is freshly prepared and tastes okay
