We visited for a family celebration. Service was good and attentive. Food was really lovely, especially the duck rago. Great children's menu. Plenty of choice for both meat and pasta, we were spoilt for choice. Would definitely return if in the area.

I only reviewed this restaurant but I am not the owner. Food is good and the place can seat about 16 -20 only. Not much room for any more.
