  • Had a wonderful evening meal here last night. The food was all delicious, we worked our way across the small plates and the pasta between 5 of us. Fabulous campari spritz and super helpful guidance on the wine list. I'm fully recommending, especially as it was only the 3rd night of service. Keep up the good work, keep learning!

  •   We really enjoyed this Italian meal. It’s home made pasta and we loved it. Beautiful Sicilian salad. The arancini was lovely with melted blue cheese inside and salty porcini on the side. It’s different from other arancini we had but it suited us well!
