This was a great Italian place in its day but a bit too specialised for the market which seems to be all about steak and prawns in this area. So no review is possible..

Great beer selection, great food, great atmosphere. Wait staff made great recommendations for our table of 14. Flatbreads, calamari. My fish soup was delicious, full of shrimp, clams, mussels and more. Rocket & goat cheese salad was impressive. Definitely recommend this restaurant.
