Will definitely be back
Lovely wee homely restaurant. Portions are generous and food is delicious. Service was attentive without being OTT. Felt very well looked after. Especially when the waitress noticed we were chilly when Storm Barbara was catching the door and opening it and so we were moved to a more enclosed space at the back without having to ask. Looking forward to visiting again.
Mussels very good and mozzarella good but spaghetti carbonae a bit greasy/oily
