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.

This is an unassuming place at the Frankfort Gate end of the city. The food is fantastic and all freshly made with a passion which is so sorely missing from chain restaurants. The service is friendly with both a knowledge and enthusiasm for the menu...More

We are doing everything possible to keep going and contain the price increase. One change for this year is that all the pasta we serve will be fresh and produced by us. Thanks for your question and happy new year Barbara

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.
