So good that there was a few disappointed faces from those that hadn't booked. The place was packed out and it wasn't even December yet. We were greeted by Carlo and then after a quick drink at the bar was politely informed by Carmelo that...More

Ten of use went for preXmas Sunday Lunch. Nice greeting, sensible table, swift prelunch drinks. Wide varied menu, nice food, friendly service, great atmosphere. Italian style with flair.
