Great food, great service and not too expensive. We had the garlic pizza as an entree and lasagne and prawn and chilli tagliatelle for main. Followed by ice cream and lemon sorbet. Yummy!

We went in evening and parked on street about 5 minutes walk away, its pot luck if you find a parking space any nearer. In the day time I would think you would need to park in one of the many city centre designated car parks
