Totally agree with vite1. It is rather like eating in someone's home with family. The food is very traditional Italian (no pizza in sight), perfectly cooked with friendly, warm service. Prices aren't exorbitant, you pay for the quality of the food here, not the fancy surroundings. Parking in Smith Street can be tricky, but you can normally get a space nearby. Lovely for a family celebration!
Very good food and very friendly service. Not the cheapest but certainly worth visiting.
Truly athentic Italian family run restaurant, which is often missed. Located on Smith Street and looking very unassuming from the outside, this really is a restaurant to book for that special occasion when you want to be assured of the quality. The chef/owner offers wonderful Italian cusine, freshly cooked with real & obvious dedication. It always feel like such a treat to eat there. It is NOT your usual pizza/pasta Italian diner, but offers genuine home prepared Italian food. My daughter particularly loved the squid, and we could not fault the selection and quality. You are always made to feel very much at home. Don't be detered by the price, granted it is not at the cheaper end of the market, but when you savour your meal you will understand why. It is best to book as their opening times have been known to change at quite short notice or if a family event dictates, so give them a call. You wont regret it.
