I had the best beef ravioli ever here! My mum had an octopus salad, never have we seen octopus so tender and flavourful. This is a beautiful hidden gem and I'd definitely recommend!!!

It's not a fancy place but it's decent. Many locals seem to go here. On the night of our visit, there was a commotion in the kitchen... More

WE stopped for lunch here after a busy days house hunting. The service was good and the pasta very interesting. The menu was reasonable and we sat in the sun and enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere.
