IN A NUTSHELL:  Amazing Italian food, pretty standard atmosphere, definite regular hot spot!

FOOD:  SO GOOD. The fact that my Italian friend Leila suggested the place, kinda says it all. She is crazy picky about what should be deemed as actual Italian food and what shouldn’t be and she loves this and so do I now!

SERVICE:  Good! Its a really small restaurant, I don’t think it fits more than 25 people or so; so with this in mind the staff are really attentive and quite lovely.

PRICE:  My favourite dish is the Rigatoni Amatriciana, which is £9. All of their mains are around this price unless you want seafood & the price increases a little. If you’re like super hungry then get a starter but for a typical night out, you’ll be more than fine with just a main, meaning you could easily spend no more than £15 each.

PERFECT FOR:  A quiet dinner with friends! Also I believe they do take-away, so they’re totally perfect for getting the pasta that will make your Friday night.

EXTRAS:  From Monday to Friday they open from 12:30 – 14:30 and then again at 17:30 – 23:30. So just keep that in mind! Also i’d suggest making a reservation if you can as the restaurant is so small, it fills up pretty quickly.

Firstly, I want to say a massive thank you, for all of the support & super kind words; the re-launch & the new direction was a little daunting but I hoped it would be well received, so thanks for making the whole process so awesome!

January for me, is an important time, it sets the tone for the year. Sure we can change and develop new habits and structures at anytime but I feel if we don’t do something in January, ergo go to the Gym, eat better, spend more time with friends & family, before you know it its August and you’re like whaaat, I had so many plans for 2016 and trust me, you don’t want to be the person who is repeating those same words every year.

So sit down, grab a new notebook or app, I like to use the Day One, and just write. I’m not talking about a diary entry, but think about what you want to do this year or improve on and then put together a realistic action plan and you’ll be surprised at how easily things can come together..
