This is a must for fans of genuine Italian cuisine. Small,family run restaurant. Food freshly cooked. Sea food tagliatelle was exceptional. Make sure you book a table to avoid disappointment! Fair prices for above average food.

They serve a very nice pasta but with a few options to choice, that is to say they have a very simple menu. A small place, no much tables, but with a friendly attendance.

I have eaten here many times with friends and family. It’s a great little place with good service and great food. It’s well priced and of a very high standard. I get flashbacks of Italy when I eat here. Would highly recommend.

Fresh, simple and Italian is the best description of our food. You can look at our chefs while they stretch the pizza dough or the pasta for the tagliatelle, and ask them directly for any special requirements. Our specialities are surely the fresh tagliatelle and ravioli, the pizza made with our own starter, the risotto made from start to finish and our own production ice cream.
