Another restaurant recommended by our B&B hosts, and their advice was spot on. It is a small, local place, with many obviously regular customers, and we had to squeeze into a table on the pavement!! It was well worth it. The portions are generous, and...More

We ordered 2 takeaway pizzas thinking one each would be more than enough. Mistake, they cost $38 for two minute pizzas. I couldnt believe it when I saw them. Once bitten twice shy. Won't be back.
