    We had a lovely lunch. The main was so tasty, the best lasagne I've had. King prawn linguine special and pizza were also great. Tiramasu lovely, creme caramel was cold, I was expecting it to be warm and the butterscotch pud nice but not home made. Drinks a bit on the pricey side. We were the only ones there, so not much of an atmosphere, evening would have been better.

    Had our first post lockdown lunch out here, and it was very quiet, just one other table. We liked it overall but thought that the pizza could have definitely done with a bit more on top, but the base was nice. One of the children had bolognaise, which was very short on meat, in fact quite hard to find any at all, but nevertheless quite tasty. The starters arrived pretty quickly, garlicky prawns and bruschetta and were tasty enough, but quite a wait for the pizza considering there was only one other table occupied. The waitress was very pleasant, and we had a nice if not spectacular lunch. Would give it another go if out that way again.

    Had a lovely meal whilst visiting the area from Brighton. What a lovely restaurant we are so glad we tried. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the food was real italian not just the usual Pizza & Pasta as served in many restaurants now a days (although Pizza & Pasta are available). We are definately returning even have made a reservation for Christms Eve dinner - Lovely owners and good value for money. - Highly recommend.
