Went after reading reviews, and speaking to locals. Waiters very accommodating and friendly, nothing was too much trouble, food was lovely, hot fresh and couldn't fault it. Would recommend highly. Very pleased we went here.

Good authentic Italian food served quickly with attentive staff. The atmosphere was good ( we visited midweek in the evening) You should definitely be looking here before considering driving out to a chain restaurant.

Lovely little restaurant and atmosphere, but last time I went and I had the tiramisu, it wasn't too good (quite tasteless). Perhaps it was an off day, and I would go back and have something else and give them a second chance.

Having been asked to book at a specific time & to pre-order our food we could not understand why we waited 45 minutes. We could have arrived at the time we wanted to be seated at! During the wait we were not offered any bread or other food and when the food arrived I can only describe it as average.... More

This is very much a place to visit if you like authentic Italian food. The waiters are mainly family and Italian. Be prepared to be flirted with ladies. It is always a very good experience eating here.
