Excellent decor and setting. Food was very good. Service was very poor. Had to wait a while to catch someone’s attention to get seated and the service got slower from there. Was really looking forward to the meal, won’t be returning.

Enjoyed a very nice lunch here with friends ~ pleasant surroundings and service ~ hot rolls and cold water to start... Pasta with meatballs lunch special was HUGE and tasty!.... also served a very good and flavourful thin crust pizza with cheese and potatoes.

Great ambience for a night out. Lovely patio setting too. I ordered the mussels, Caesar salad and margarita pizza. Disappointed with the mussels. They smelled fishy and the sauce was plain. However salad was fresh and pizza excellent! Friendly server too. Overall I would recommend...More
