“We have pizza, pasta, arancini, and mussels in a napoletana sugo as well as veal and chicken dishes,” owner and manager Adrian Giuliani said. “But our most popular dish has proven to be pasta served in a pecorino cheese wheel.

“We have recently introduced an Italian inspired vegan menu as a result of locals’ request and the feedback has been great. Our range of Italian cocktails, beers and wines are popular too and we can accommodate for people with gluten intolerances.”

This family pizza restaurant first opened in August 2017 and Adrian jumped at this opportunity when it was presented to him.
