Went today 1:45 Friday 24/3/17. 3 people £33. Cash only, no debit or credit cards due to excessive bank charges . Don't blame them. 3 red wines, 3 main meals, 3 coffees. Everything very tasty, as usual. Polite and attentive staff. Genuine Italian food and owner. No sweet course due to watching our waistlines. We had to pre-book, it gets... More

Lovely staff, lovely table by the window, lovely lasagne and frangipane tart. And very good value. Came for lunch with family for the first time and really enjoyed it. Not fancy, just cosy atmosphere with authentic Italian cooking. Would definitely go back without a doubt. Great!

I visited with 4 friends for the first time last night. The service was quick and the food tasty. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Nice atmosphere. The x84 bus stops right outside the door if you don't wish to drive. Only minor criticism is that the menu was on the board in Italian so our waiter had to... More

Fab friendly family run Italian ristorante. Excellent food. We were presented with bruschetta and olives while we decided to have their lobster ravioli for lunch. Followed by a fresh fig, pear and amaretti tart and a Tiramisu. Prosecco and cappuccinos good too. Limited number of covers, about 25, so you MUST book to ensure you get a table. Turned away...

We arrived on the top floor which has a retractable roof which should be fantastic in summer but it's cold with the roof on in winter but they do provide blankets which you will need or better still sit a floor below . I would love to sit there on a clear summers night . The food was the best... More
