  • Visitor Information

Warm and welcoming as only the Italians can muster. The menu takes in plenty of Italian staples, straddling the usual suspects such as as a meaty lasagne, as well as some great regional efforts. However, we recommend you stick with the grand-daddy of Italian cuisine – the Pizza.

With the dough spun on the chef’s fingers right in front of you in the open kitchen, you know you’re getting the authentic article. Once out of the oven the bases strike just the right balance between crispy and abrasive, to our delight piled high with a great selection of quality toppings. They’re enormous too – so nobody will end up with their hunger unsated. If you’ve missed a couple of meals, we suggest the whopping calzone, tasty as well as filling.

Outside the yellow façade sit a few tables which are a pleasant spot from where to people-watch on a sunny day. A simple yet charming interior is reminiscent of simple restaurants in Italy.
