The restaurant is cosy with excellent food. The service was excellent and friendly. My marinara pasta was delicious and fresh. The mushroom starter was terrific. Great place. Fully recommended.

Surprising little restaurant with mainly Pasta menu, but a few other little gems, including fish, well presented and very tasty. FIVE STARS for the Fish stew. A generous portion of fish in a gorgeous sauce. Order garlic bread on the side to mop it up....More
