The upstairs restaurant not the cafe. It is all made fresh for you so you will probably need to be patient if as we did you arrive around 1 pm and find them almost full - we were lucky to fit in. Nice buzzy atmosphere.
Lovely hot garlic bread, cod with peas, UK veal escalope, rocket salad, panna cotta with raspberry sauce. All well cooked & attractive. But a really long wait for the mains (they apologised even though we had not complained) & it is only moderately good value - set lunch much cheaper if you fancy the choices. The attached deli has interesting stuff.

Whether you judge a restaurant by the food or the staff or the ambience this restaurant is the tops. Real Italian , a perfect place to eat or relax. 4 of us ate different dishes and they were great. The place was busy so we did not get any special service that was not available to others. I cannot recommend this place high enough.

Dropped in for a quick lunch - gorgeous food and excellent service. We will certainly visit again when next in the area, and will allow more time so that we can eat more!
