Lovely food, lovely people, lovely location. What more could you ask for? This is a great Italian restaurant where we had a very enjoyable lunch. Apart from the menu on their website, there are some good specials - and they have a proper pizza oven!

We booked way in advance for an opera night. I thought this might turn out to be a very starchy affair but I was wrong. The food, the staff, the atmosphere, the singing was fantastic. I really enjoyed the food and wine. House wine was...More
