Spaghetti Marinara was a big dish with lots of seafood, with a fab taste. This was followed by a tiramisu which our waitress said ‘was to die for’. If you did die, you would know for sure that you were in heaven. It was fantastic.

Really impressed with the service, drinks and food were served without delay. The meals were very reasonably priced. $13 for 2 tacos. Very noisey ,we had 10 adults on our table so was very cramped. Overall it is a good atmosphere for casual dining.
