Lovely food and warm atmosphere. Our server, Matthew, was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and provided a humourous and efficient service. The food was fantastic; big recommendations include: calamari fritti, ricotta gnocchi and pork chop. The owner, Gianni, provides general, reassuring, oversight and a warm welcome and farewell.

Service and food was quite good, however the noise level was almost intolerable. You could not hear the person sitting next to you.

Everything was so-so, the tiramisu was bad, the soup bland and tasteless, don't think I will go back. Not worth the price.
