Easily accommodated a walk-in table of 9 and turned us around without rush or compromise within the 45 mins we had available. Nice choice of traditional Italian fare at reasonable prices. Great taste and nice presentation. Service courteous and flawless. Recommended.

They have about 18 different flavours! The ice cream itself is good - the pistachio is not as good as Aromi’s (which is fantastic) but it’s still v good! The woman serving was lovely and my daughter said the chocolate was excellent!
