The staff were friendly. The menu was average but the portions were not. Nothing too spectacular but seemed to be popular. Reasonably priced

This is a red chequer table-cloth Italian restaurant that does excellent pizzas. Nothing fancy, but good food and good value. Our waitress was friendly and efficient and we were well looked after.

You can't go wrong. The pastas are Devine, lasagna is a great choice. The service quick and friendly. There is a nice view over the golf course. Don't hesitate if you feel like some Italian cuisine.
