Delicious, great value Italian cuisine....never disappoints! I ordered the arrabiatta pasta with extra prawns ...and it was delicious. Wine list is excellent and not too expensive. Service is great and the atmosphere is perfect for a get together with friends.

When last visiting this restaurant I was hoping that I wouldn't fall sick. Unfortunately this happened again. I don't know what goes on here with hygiene in kitchen as something must have been contaminated. Furthermore, I was not the only person that was ill.

Always full and for good reason. The atmosphere is buzzing and it feeds off the hearty food that is served! That is why people like coming here. We had a table of 5 adults and one child. We were seated out side and it was great for people watching as the crowds streamed in. There was a safe play area... More

Visited the place with my entire family including my 2 year old nephew and the staff were really accommodating. Food was excellent as always. chicken pasta is always a winner here. Tiramisu is about the closest I have tasted to the ones I had in Italy. Great Italian restaurant
