Really good authentic Italian food. Great pizza. Welcoming & friendly atmosphere. When it's warmer you can sit outside.

I often meet my grown-up children here, as we know the quality of the food will always be excellent. Friendly and relaxed service ensures we always leave with a smile on our faces. Dishes are always piping hot with a wide variety of Italian dishes.
