This Italian restaurant at the bottom of St Benedict's street is a regular of mine and my partner's. The menu prices are excellent for the real Italian food as provided by the proprietor, Umberto who continues to bring his native food to his humble restaurant.

My wife and I have eaten here twice and have been very happy both times. The house wine is very nice, the pizzas really good. No complaints at all.
