I visit this Pizza Restaurent on a regular basis with some friends. The owner is very welcoming, warm and friendly. Pizza's are top notch, done in a wood fired oven and with plenty of ingredients. We always eat in and never been dissappointed.

A good "back to basics" Italian restaurant. The staff were very friendly and helpful serving good food. The ambience is a little bright for a romantic meal but the food and service made it a lovely experience
