Visited with 3 generations. Something for everyone on the menu. Good pizzas and pastas, but also a nice range of steaks, fish etc. Good service. Lively atmosphere.

Although we arrived without a reservation and the dining room was almost full, we were seated at what must have been the worst table right next to the door. But, hey, no complaints about that, given our lack of a reservation. The two waitresses were...More

The restaurant is tucked away off the square and we entered from a pedestrianised alley. It's spacious inside with an informal arrangement of tables, the atmosphere being created by bright tablecloths, posters and extensive specials board above the bar. We thought the food was tasty,...More

Popular and friendly place. Quite informal. Good freshly prepared pizza. The vegetarian pasta dish was less exciting.

Excellent food, service, staff and atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday night and if we hadn't booked we might have had a wait, that is how good this place is. Good choice of menus and wine lists. They even do gluten free.
