We began with mouth-watering antipasti - beautifully flavoursome Parma ham and soft cheese was accompanied by deep-fried focaccia, which is a delicious and unique little delicacy. The saltiness of the ham and creaminess of the cheese was set off beautifully by the mellow bread and was matched perfectly by the crisp chardonnay that was expertly recommended to us by our waiter. A main course of soft, delicate cod fillet was accompanied by a rich and tangy tomato, caper and oregano salsa - a combination which sent my tastebuds into glorious orbit. Served with fresh vegetables and crisp, tasty roast potatoes, this was a light yet satisfying dish. Their Scottish fillet steak was moist and juicy, cooked rare and served with a powerful, piquant peppercorn sauce. The menu also boasts a varied selection of pizzas and pastas for those seeking more traditional Italian fare. The highlight was undoubtedly their spectacular tiramisu. Billed as the house speciality, this cheeseboard lover was lured into sampling a sweet treat - and it did not disappoint. Straddling the fine line between light and creamy, with a generous slosh of booze and a thick dusting of cocoa, each spoonful was an intense pleasure.
