I'd taken my aunt and we lunched on the roof terrace. The menu was varied and reasonably priced - Soup of the Day followed by freshly caught fish and a crisp white wine

We had a fantastic meal! The steak was wonderfully well cooked. On top of that, the server (Arcangelo) was particularly friendly and welcoming. He advised us in Italian and helped us decide on which meal to order!

Always busy, but talbles cleared regularly, friendly professional staff, very fresh ingredients, portions not too big or too small. Highlight - POLENTA CHIPS! Special mention of our lovely Italian Waitress 'Valentina'.

Many thanks for your superb review ! Ohhhh our polenta chips are on offer only for a limited time - our Autumn menu is due in a couple of week and we might even tear up :)

Stunning location, with beautiful food, cooked perfectly. One complaint, had to wait nearly 1/2 hour before being offered a drink ! Apart from that, very enjoyable evening. Will be returning soon x
