Staff are lovely, it's pretty noisy but a very cute little restaurant, I've sent my stakeholders there many times before but never been myself. food was kind of late (we had a starter) and I had to leave early and run to a meeting but didn't flag I was under time pressure either.

A lovely restaurant in a great location. Food and service are both excellent. I have dined here on several occasions and always enjoy it. At lunchtime it can be noisy so probably not ideal for anyone with a hearing difficulty but otherwise, that noise also gives a lively vibe to the atmosphere. I definitely recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning soon.

This has always been my favourite Italian place in the city with a cosy rustic ambience. I wish the menu is back to pre-covid which offer more choices asap. But still 5 stars from me!!

All in all a great restaurant. Food was tasty and fresh though the biggest let down was the minuscule portion sizes. I still felt hungry after two entrees and a main.

What stood out the most was the excellent service provided by the lady who was serving our table.

One of the toughest measures of success for a restaurant is consistency. I’ve been eating at this stand out restaurant for all most 20 years whenever I’m in town, and it’s always consistently fabulous!
