Location

Right in the centre of the town, it’s easy to reach and well placed for people-watching if you bag a seat by the window.

First impressions

With the stone walls, little booths and atmospheric lighting, there’s a contemporary feel which contrasts with traditional solid wooden floors and tables and chairs.

Service

We’re greeted by a lovely waitress who caters for our every whim, brings colouring for the children and all with a smile.

Menu

The menu is huge. There are 15 different types of bruschetta, 27 pizzas to choose from and 26 styles of pasta, not to mention risottos, ribs and fish and meat dishes. Even the fussiest of eaters are guaranteed to find a dish they like. We found the hardest part was whittling it down to a plate each.

Taste

We go for the bruscetta and BBQ chicken wings to start and both are delicious. The portions are a good size. And we follow it with a spicy salami pizza and spaghetti con polette – spaghetti with meatballs – for mains. The pizza is cooked to perfection and the meatballs are divine. The kids lap up their pizza and macaroni cheese in silence… a sure sign they’re enjoying it. For dessert we go for a raspberry snowball delight sundae which I would highly recommend but, even sharing, we struggle to finish it.

Ambience

The restaurant is busy, but tucked away in our booth, we feel cosy and relaxed. A lovely place just to chill.

Price

At £53 for two adults and two children, it’s a bargain! Sunday is a good day to visit as they have a special menu. Quality food at a good price.


P.S. We strongly recommend trying a cocktail – or a mocktail. We can vouch for the orange and raspberry mojito. Tasty and refreshing.
