Visit here and was not disappointed by what we found. All staff were friendly and welcoming, without being over the top, and the food was fresh and delicious. There is a great novelty to being able to see your pizza being made, and watch it...More

Family run bistro with a menu that offers something for everyone. The pizza was freshly made in a traditional pizza oven. Good selection of wine too. Service was excellent. It can be busy as it's a small restaurant so book to avoid disappointment.
