Service was excellent, staff were very polite, very friendly and the food was excellent. Only thing let's it down is that it's cash only but other than that would have no problem recommending to anyone. The king prawn linguine was Fantastic. 5*

Visited for lunch. Friendly staff and really good authentic Italian food with excellent atmosphere. Don't accept debit or credit cards and the warning signs are very small so be warned but hell who cares the food is worth it.

Sorry we just chose from menu in the cafe and as no online menu you would probably need to contact as others have suggested.
