7.30 pm on a busy Thursday night out in the City but we were the only people in the restaurant. We soon found out why. The service was indifferent - they forgot our bread and olives until we reminded them. Our main course then arrived...More

Lovely place with a family feel to it. Climbed three sets of steep tiny wooden stairs to get to the small room at the top where we were presented with authentic northern Italian pasta and dessert dishes. We were charmed by the old world style...More
