Tips

  • A proper Italian place where you can choose you pasta on a plate. The pizzas are delicious as well
  • Ravioli and other filled pasta is homemade and delicious, go for that. Try the cured meats too. The place is nice but small so you might have trouble finding a table. On a balance good but expensive.
  • Delicious gnocchi
  • Delicious and cheap take away options for lunch. The Melanzana is to die for.
  • Unreal pizza! Very large portions, loved the melon salad!
  • For a small restaurant they are hugely popular so book ahead to avoid disappointment. Pizzas are delicious. Looking forward to trying the fresh pasta next time. Finish off with a tiramisu
  • Excellent pizzas!
  • All of the pastas are great. Boat, lobster, mushroom, walnut gnocchi.
  • Great for lunch, good Italian food for a reasonable price
