Great staff with upbeat attitude despite being extremely busy. Appears to be a favorite of locals. The lamb was delectable. The onion rings, mozzarella sticks and appetizer platter looked great. The pizza was disappointing.

Had our dinner here and enjoyed both nice food and service. Buzy place so would recommend to book a table so you don't have to queue and wait.

The food was good, but the menu is mostly pizza, pasta and hamburgers and was overpriced for what it was.

Upon arriving, I’m glad I read reviews about the bell because no one told us about pressing the button for service. Two of us ordered the grilled lamb and it was cold and extremely chewy on arrival. The staff however was very attentive when we...More
