We had their recommendation 'Tagliolini alle Vongole', and it was full of sand! Our son had a pizza, and this tasted like plastic😡. Absolutely a 1st time, last time!

Called in for a cappuccino and to get out of the rain. Pretty busy but they were coping well and at speed. Spent a pleasant half hour people watching. Clearly the place is popular with the locals, always a good sign.

They make pasta, brusceta, pizza but fish they cant prepare. Over cooked Salmon, Pangasius not exactly North Sea fish.. Staff is over worked. Dissapointing visit will not return.
