Cute little restaurant with a nice variety of pastas, tapas and some other less common dishes. The food was fresh and home made . Overall an excellent place for dinner.

Don't miss the fresh pasta and sauces at this hidden jewel in Northampton. The menu also features a selection of made to order Italian dishes - and an easy-going atmosphere, including al fresco dining. Good wine list too.
