We neatly missed the spot but were welcomed in and had the most amazing meal! The carpaccio was excellent and the OssoBucco with risotto sublime. We enjoyed the service and felt welcomed and cared for! The limoncello to end was a lovely treat! Definitely would...More

Hopelessly overcooked chicken, tasting of nothing but overpowering celery. Polenta also dominated by the taste of celery. When chicken falls off the tip of a knife with a light touch it IS overcooked.

I was surprisingly amazed at what this owner chef turns out solely in that kitchen. The selection of available pizza's & pasta's are the best in town. There's a decent variety to choose from & some delicate touches on the menu.

Authentic Italian trattoria styled restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinners. Authentic Italian trained chef makes tradition Italian cuisine like mamma does. Come try our Spaghetti Bolognese, beef Lasagna, Spinach and ricotta cannelloni which are all traditional dishes that will have you coming back for more... Our thin based pizza's are also a must. Our Deli is stocked with imported items to tempt you which are all used in our menu... We make fresh homemade ravioli which can be pre ordered for that special occasion
