Excellent food and service - big plus having a lovely sun terrace to sit and have a drink and food.

Had a great meal here and found the service and food excellent. Enjoyed the calamari, the meat balls and pizza calzone. The Villa Eaton Mess was beautiful. Food was some of the best I have had recently and all at very good prices.

Always a lovely family experience! Wonderful friendly owner and staff. Everything on the menu is always perfectly cooked - recommended it to many of our friends - Bellissimo

We had a great meal here on Saturday night. The restaurant was nicely busy with a great atmosphere! My mum only has a small appetite so she had a children's carbonara and it was delicious! Both my husband and son had meatballs, I had the mussels and my dad had the steak rigatoni with blue cheese. Very attentive staff, great family feel, nice food, reasonable prices...well worth a visit!
