Choose from a multitude of homemade options from Penne Bolognese, to Fettuccine Tuna, to Farfalle Carbonara. But the pasta isn’t the only thing that is homemade, with lasagne and pizza also on the menu. The lasagne is cooked to the perfect temperature, with the meat, cheese and sauce combining to create a balanced and mouth-watering taste.
