What a fab little find! Owners were awesome, food delicious and an unexpectedly sophisticated dining experience. They provided a delicious vege option which I loved - and the chocolate cake was generous and yum 😋

We ordered Pizzette for starter and then Peppered lamb Rump and Bistecca Funghi as mains and the food were tastiest. The atmosphere surrounding the place was very welcoming and friendly, together with great service provided by staff.
