Went with friends and we had 2 courses each and 2 bottles of prosecco as part of the meal deal. Everything we ordered was very tasty and well presented. The waiter provided a high level of service. Will definitely return, hopefully soon.

Tucked away slightly off the main drag this place does lovely food and coffee during the daytime and is also a great place early evening, we enterd as strangers but left as friends, prices OK for a city centre I guess.
