Very nice pizza, proper italian. The staff was nice and friendly. Prices were really good, small pizza (12inches) less than£10. The service could've been quicker, that's why I rated it 4/5.

Really pleased with the excellent food and service at my father in laws 90th birthday party. Great antipasti platters and tasty calamari. Range of mains followed by choice of three desserts, plus swapped some for sorbet or ice cream. Would definitely recommend for family fixtures.
