A quaint little restaurant in the south end of the city. Food and service is really good. If you’re in the area it’s worth s visit.

We went for the 2 course lunch menu which at £10.90 is ridiculous value. We had arancini, antipasto, gnocchi and past nera with cod, mussels and chorizo. Every dish was superb and authentic. Service was very good too.

We opted just to go for mains and had the £6.90 pasta and soft drink. Both were absolutely amazing! My partner had the pasta meat feast and I had the daily special amatriciana with goats cheese. We have a side of garlic bread with cheese!...More
