Not an extensive menu, however the food was fantastic. Could do with some more decor

Very good service on arrival and throughout the night. Making us feel comfortable at all times, didn't have to wait for food or drinks. Everything went smoothly and timing was spot on.

For a new restaurant just starting out, these guys did everything right. Food was excellent and well-priced. There's a choice between imported or homemade pasta – pay the extra couple of bucks and get homemade. Decent selection of cocktails and the staff were all super lovely. Pretty sure we met the owner too, who seemed like a top fella. All round great evening!

Delicious homemade pasta. Just the right selection for the menu. Smallish menu so everything is done really well. Really glad I went and will be taking friends in the future.

With a relaxed atmosphere it is a great place to eat as it caters for all (with kids menu). By just focussing on some tasty pasta dishes they can do it well. Pumpkin ravioli with sage butter was a treat, with the pear salad as a refreshing accompaniment on a warm night. Nice outdoor eating area for the summer nights coming up too
