Fantastic family meal. Inexpensive menu. Food was excellent quality and full of flavour. All homemade and prepared fresh. Excellent quality and very cheap house wine. Very friendly, excellent location high on the hill. Well worth a visit.

Just wonderful, authentic, delicious dishes at ridiculously low prices. Great location and exceptional staff. When you get ripped off in places like Lucca being fed dog food at god awful prices this restaurant restores one's faith in the italian ability to cook.

We have been going to this adorable restaurant for many years now. The staff are amazingly friendly and even the chef takes time out to come round every table asking if the food was to everyone's liking. The home made pastas are fabulous as are...More
