My partner and I and another couple decided to try here after the recommendations of friends and trip adviser reviews. The food was very good and service was excellent. The waiter Joe explained the concept of the restaurant and how it supports people, very impressed with him and the rest of the staff. 1 small critique is I thought the ragu sauce was a little bland, however that is just my personal opinion. All other dishes were very tasty and excellently presented. I would definitely recommend.

The food and staff are very nice, however very unorganised it took almost 20 minutes to get the bill then 20 minutes to sort out paying.
