Found this restaurant by accident. Staff accommodating and friendly. Atmosphere was lovely. Food was good, we had risotto. The best ice cream I've had for a long time. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes Italian food.

First time visiting here and I was overly impressed by the service and food. I had a baileys coffee which was lovely and spaghetti bolengese with garlic bread which was delicious. Food was quick to arrive and staff were very welcoming.
