Best Italian food I've had in the area by far. Coupled with great service and a wonderful selection of wine.

Potentially the smallest café/restaurant I have come across, but packed with rustic charm. The staff are all Italian and sell a great range of foodstuffs - the freshly made sandwiches on Italian breads are a must have at lunch and are so delicious!
