Arrived early evening for a spur of the moment meal with a friend as we were nearby.

Good service, lovely food and a very nice restaurant. Price was ok. Good value for money.

Tagliatelle seemed to be a specialty the night we went and it was very nice. The ragu with it was delicious. Tiramisu for pudding was pretty good too.

This is a sophisticated but casual environment. Tucked away with a tiny terrace for drinks and snacks, the room was not overly busy when we visited on a S aturday evening. The food was really lovwly and the wine suggested by the boss was fab and not overly pricey. Only slight blip was the cheese platter, which lacked variety - no blue, no hard, all tallegio- esque. Compimentary liqueurs/prosecco was a nice touch. Would certainly return

Based on the positive reviews here, we booked a table for two, hoping for a tasty dining experience and were not disappointed.

The welcome was warm and friendly and set the tone for the evening. The restaurant wasn't particularly full, although there was a party taking place on the floor below (which we couldn't hear at all). This restaurant deserves to be full but it's location slightly off the beaten track may mean it doesn't get the attention it deserves.

The food is superb. Starters were grilled prawns with fennel for me and zucchini flower filled with sheep and goat cheese for my friend. Just the right amount on the plate and very tasty. For the main course, we both opted for one of the specials of the day, tagliatelle (freshly made) with truffles - delicious! The accompanying wine was good and complemented the food really well. Our desserts were tiramisu and chocolate soufflé which were a perfect finish to an excellent meal.

Service throughout was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely be back and I've no hesitation in recommending it.

Food was great, service was great then you get your bill...

When you get brought bread with your starter you don't expect to be charged £3.50 for it, never asked for it.... Don't bring me water then charge me £4.00 for the bottle...

Don't know why places do this, they turn a positive experience into a negative...

absolutely wonderful homemade Italian food, it doesn't get much better than this. I can't recommend this restaurant enough. A real gem. The pasta is to wonderful, homemade and the sauces great. The service was at tentative and for us the Italians sitting at the table next to us talking non stop just added to the atmosphere.
