“BestFood Ever” 

Reviewed May 2017

We booked this restaurant on the recommendation of previous diners & so glad we did! This has to be the best food we have ever had! We started with the bruschetta & pizza bread which was just perfect & a taste of what what was to follow. There were 5 of us & we each chose a different main, none of which disappointed, my chicken breast with hazelnuts was beautifully tender & full of flavour, I couldn’t fault it at all. My husband had a steak which he declared perfect & the rest of our party had various pastas which each declared the “best” We didn’t plan on having desserts but on the strength of the mains & seeing other diners desserts being brought out we decided to indulge ourselves.So often desserts can disappoint but not these, they were just fabulous, make sure you leave room for them if you are dining here. The service is attentive & fast & the atmosphere cosy although it is quite noisy however this can be forgiven as the food is quality all the way & well worth a visit

 ”Great Pizza”
Reviewed May 2017
Busy bustling place, make sure you book. Had bruschetta to start, yum and a pizza to follow. Great pizza with a nice base, not too thick or thin. Friend had the risotto which didn’t have much flavour. No room for dessert. Friendly service, fast and efficient. Will go again
