Food was outstanding!
Popped in on a Sunday and there was no one else in the restaurant. Went for a few starters with some bread and the food was delicious. I'd definitely come back!

If you ever find yourself here, believe me when I say you are in Pasta heaven. I definitely recommend you have a meal from their specials menu because the creativity and unique-ness put in, is heavenly. The place is so cosy and their service is five stars.
