We had a lovely meal here for Lunch. We got some of the special menu and the dishes were beautifully presented and also very delicious. I especially liked the Baccala wraps. It gets busy so get there right when it opens to get a table.

Welcoming host and good service. The food was excellent and well priced. The porcini pappadelle and tagliatelle ordered from the plates of the day menu were superb. Would recommend booking - we managed a walk up start but saw many customers turned away. Highly recommended.

This restaurant appears to be quite small but is really the opposite with a number of dining levels below the street. We have dined here on several occasions over the past 2 years and have not been disappointed. This occasion was no different. There were...More
