Pasta was not good at all. Pizza is not served at lunch time. Would not recommend this place. Bruschetta was OK

The food was excellent and served really fast. I would recommend trying their antipasti. There was a lovely assortment of items and all very tasty and fresh. The pizzas were great too and very large. Excellent value for money.
