We had a limited menu due to renovations, but the food on offer was delicious and the service welcoming and informal. Lovely atmosphere...only sorry that we aren't around on Saturday when their full menu returns. The Stracchino with tomatoes, cherries and basil was particularly gorgeous.

Very popular and interesting concept to try - but the wine list is full of obscure overpriced wines that are too young to drink. Choose other drinks options to avoid disappointment.
