White walls with pencil sketches from the tale of Pinocchio, spotlight lighting and candlelight made it a twinkly environment to be. Waitress service was fairly attentive and it wasn't too long a wait for drinks.
Each one was delicious in its own way staying true to Italian flavours and good produce - simple flavour combinations that are classic yet work on crispy bread. The topping to bread ratio worked and kept the crispy bruschetta moist.
The pasta is home made and I found that with the seafood spaghetti (frutti di mare), the strands stuck together and the whole thing was quite heavy and dense. The flavours of seafood, chilli, garlic and olive oil was good. There were hints of tomato and I'd have liked a little bit more. I think the delicate nature of seafood needs a lighter pasta.
The lamb papperdelle combined with the heavier pasta was much more of a winning combination. Tasty chunks of lamb that was flavoursome with almost dumpling like al dente pasta. The robustness of the lamb could take the doughier pasta better than the seafood could.
The lasagne was apparently nice enough - rich and satisfying but could do with some more gratin ie crispy cheesy edges.
The slice of pizza I had was good - thin and crispy, sweet tomato and creamy cheese.
