We ate here on a Saturday night on the strength of TA reviews, however neither of particularly enjoyed our meal.

Ambiance is nice and service polite and swift, however for us, the food was trying to hard to be unique. Neither of us particularly enjoyed our meal and probably wouldnt return. We ordered a lovely bottle of Sangiovese wine which was excellent, followed by Mushroom and garlic Bruschetta (OK, 6 out of ten, but the original tomato based one is nicer), Shrimp in tomato and garlic (7 out of 10). This was followed by Margerita pizza with additional ham ordered. The ham didnt arrive so it was pretty plain with Rocket from a big bowl (We thought it was a 5 out of 10 pizza. Very average). Also we had the Hare Ragu with Papperdele and red berries. (1 out of 10 for this). Very sweet due to too many red berries and tasted like Bolognese with a lot of sugar sprinkled on top (it just did not work)

So nice place, nice service, but food didnt work for us.

Atmosphere filled restaurant. Had to wait about 10minutes for a table at around 9.30pm on a Saturday night. Would recommend the antipasti platter for 2 people. A good taster of different cold meats, olives, onions, typical Italian risotto balls etc. But it is very filling. We couldn't finish our mains of a pizza and risotto, which was a shame as they were both very good. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Busy restaurant full of locals. All of the food we ordered was very tasty and there are some more unusual italian combinations on the menu. I had the risotto with red snapper fish. My cousin had the raviolli with cherry tomatoes. We did not book (Sunday night).

I dined here as a group with several friends - everyone LOVED their pizzas. The crust was a perfect mix between crispy and chewy, and they have quite a range of topping combinations. I had the pizza with crab, prawns, lemon, and shaved fennel - something I've never had before... and I was pleasantly surprised! The appetizer (various italian ham & salami) was good too. Prices are quite high for pastas (almost €20), but the pizzas are ok at €12-14 a pop. Expect to spend at least €30 for a 3-course meal incl. wine. The waiting staff was friendly, despite being a little slow. Overall, it was a nice dining experience!

Loved the pizza and the friendly waitress. Also, pocket friendly! The only bad thing is that they allow smokers... Ok, I was seating outside, but the tables are so close to each other that it was really annoying.
