Sat outside by the little pond and sufficient shade on a hot day. Service was amazing and the staff very friendly and attentive. We had the grilled calamari and Mikes salad and the pizzas looked amazing! I would definitely go back!

The atmosphere at the outdoor seating is just right. Enough people around, but not overcrowded. Good company obviously help. Service can sometimes be a bit slow, but the food is worth the wait. My pasta was a monster portion, but I just had to finish...More

Had a lovely family Sunday lunch. Nice menu. The food was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the fried ice cream dessert. Good selection of wines. Nice outdoor seating. Lots of activities for children with a big lawn, jungle gym and a free tractor ride!
