I have been to this place numerous times and I have never been disappointed. This is authentic cuisine and I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys fine dining. Squid-ink Ravioli and Spaghetti Bottarga and to satisfy your sweet tooth the heavenly Tiramisù!

I visited the restaurant with a friend one evening. We had pasta and meat. All dishes were excellent. The recommended Primitivo wine was perfect. Nice and friendly service. I will come back again to taste more good Italian food and wine.

The 10 of us agreed that the food and service was of an exceptional standard. They even made my fussy 10 yr old a simple non lumpy sauce for his pasta , which he loved. Everything was made from scratch and full of flavour. Great...More

Yes, there are gluten-free options and most other dishes can be adjusted to be gluten-free if not already. We usually have a couple of gluten-free pastas to substitute in the non gluten-free pastas that we make.
