Every time I have been, I haven't been disappointed. The food is well prepared and you can have an easy afternoon or early supper with wine.

Really feels like sitting under the olive trees in some Italian village in the countryside! Service friendly but somewhat laid back. Our choice of mains did not disappoint. The lamb cutlets and filet mignon were excellently prepared. Interesting menu and small winelist
