A nice family weekend in Chester was spoilt by our visit to this cafe. The food was cold and overpriced and the table was dirty. We asked for 3 lattes which tasted bad asked for them to be changed and the same came back.

Our Group of 14 were well looked after with great service and delicious original Italian food, especially the Pizzas fresh out of the oven. Well worth a visit whether it be a snack or a more fuller meal.

On a day out in Chester we came across this place, have to say it’s lovely, a little dated yes but it feels quaint. My kids shared a pizza (made to order) and they loved it would go again for pizza that’s for sure 👍
