This is the kind of neighbourhood Italian restaurant that we all want. After Friday's great dinner, we realised we had walked past it too often in the last year on the way to lesser meals. Aubergine parmigana cooked beautifully, my favourite spinach and ricotta canneloni...More

      This small Italian restaurant is friendly with attentive service. The menu is traditional and authentic, not a pizzeria. I highly recommend asking for a mixed starter “plate”.

      Enjoyed some excellent Italian food from the set lunch menu. It was freshly cooked and tested really good. Only gripe would be slightly pricey glass of wine.
