We hadn't booked, but a table was found for us. The staff were very friendly at all times even when I knocked over a glass of water. The food we had was very good, the service we had was good. I would recommend a visit

We popped in around 7p.m. without reservation. It was busy, but a very polite man squeezed us in - of course with a bit of waiting. We ordered pasta with meatballs. They offer glutenfree pasta too! Very attentive service! One of us is a bit...More
