In an unassuming side street in
We were warmly welcomed and seated , the lunchtime menu was extensive , I choose the bruschetta mista, Mr B the funghi trifolia, whilst waiting for the starters we nibbled on good black olives, admiring the photographs of
The mains arrived after a suitable break , Spaghetti alio, aglio and pepercino and spaghetti carbonara , both cooked well and very filling. All in all a pleasurable lunch venue and good value too !

Now to the food , we ordered a starter each, bruschetta and breads and olives and olive oil. The portions despite being a starter were quite large, the bruschetta crunchy and smothered with juicy tasty tomatoes, the olives were of really good quality and the oil / Balsamic mix well flavoured. On to the mains, I ordered Chicken Dianne which a arrived both with seasoned rice and little roasted potatoes and fresh vegetables, the chicken was moist and succulent and the sauce excellent. My other half ordered the lasagne, accompanied by both garlic bread and salad, the plate was quickly cleared which I always take as a good sign.
We didn’t have a desert as by now we were quite full but the menu choices sounded very appetizing, the bar is also well stocked, cocktails available and its the first restaurant I have every seen "Tunisian" wine being featured. All in all we were very impressed and will definitely be visiting again.
