Yummy food served here. Have been a couple of times and always had a good meal. Get in early or book as it is not a large place.

This restaurant was close to our accommodation & our love of Italian food made it a perfect choice. The food was quite good but the service was average.

I found the waiters really friendly yet they seemed in fear of their boss .I chose the fettachini carbarnara which was very nice ,then chose a french apple pie for sweets.I was very disappointed when it was served up with canned mock cream..
