Good Genovese food, excellent atmosphere, just right for a large group of friends. Gets quite busy so I recommend you book ahead. Not in a great part of town but don't let that worry you. We never felt rushed but the service was attentive.

Good food and friendly staff. Easily managed a group of 12 elderly English people. Order was taken promptly and food delivered quickly. All 12 enjoyed the food and experience.
