This restaurant is a great find. A lovely menu choice and food to enjoy with a nice wine. And what a tasty combination - Italian/Turkish cuisine. Definitely give it a try if you enjoy good food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Visited this hole in the wall restaurant several years ago and just loved the food and the strangely endearing Italian:Turkish family behind it. Brought teens with us this time and we're delighted that it was the same. Excellent food and the staff were genuinely warm....More
