Lovely atmosphere - sat in the window seat, which they made up specially for us. Attentive service (although quiet that lunchtime), and friendly staff. Lovely tasty food with ample amounts of seafood on my linguine and very tasty duck in my partner's risotto. Delicious tiramisu to follow with strong tasty coffee.
