The food was very good, but frequented by many tourist groups, then the service has its hands whole and the chaos ruins the ambient

Delicious pasta followed by a glorious piece of meat with tiramisu to take away the meat sweats. Taken care by staff from the start to finish. A little pricey but off set as there is no cover charge or service tax. Would highly recommend to...More

Good food. Must try the tomato soup, it's amazing. Wait staff is pretty disappointing though. We had a pretty arrogant/brash guy wait on us. Kind of pricey wine as well but then again, it's near the train station so not surprised.
