Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable to a couple of newbies to this restaurant. We shared the prawn pizza, cuttlefish, both with chilli and delicious. Desserts of pannacotta and lemon meringue pie were also great. We will be back.

Very good food (Italian themed) that was delivered to the table within 10 minutes of ordering. Additionally they have a few craft beers to choose from at a reasonable price. Atmosphere is pleasant. I recommend sitting outside.
