My husband and I were lucky to get a table here this evening. The food was delicious and the service really friendly and welcoming. I had the fish soup and the ravioli special and it was perfectly cooked. Excellent place!

We enjoyed our meal here and were going to go again, only to find it shut on Thursday evenings. Very good quality Italian food, good pasta and generous portions (the swordfish was twice as much in quantity as would be expected in Britain)

Managed to get a table even though we hadn’t booked. Realised how fortunate we were when the place filled quickly. Lovely service, excellent food, reasonable prices. We’ll certainly be back.

We had delicious rabbit ravioli and ricotta tagliatelle. While the service was very nice and attentive, the atmosphere seemed touristy which it clearly wasn't.

They have a Facebook page. You can find their opening times, telephone number and email. It’s always best to book by phone though. Enjoy your meal if you do end up going!
