This must be one of the best authentic tasting Italian meals since we were in Italy. The staff were great and the surroundings brill. We wish there were more places like this. Good value food, but lager a little pricey. Will be back

This restaurant is excellent, serving both local and Mediterranean dishes at reasonable prices. The service is good too, with friendly staff and short waiting times for meals. You must book though, as it's very popular and gets very busy during the summer season.
