Message from the Italian restaurant and Pizzeria DIVE IN owners

With a combined 20 years experience in the restaurant industry, we like to think we know a thing or two about the qualities needed in a successful Italian restaurant. Everything on our menu is homemade using traditional cooking techniques and ingredients, and our wine is seasonal, meticulously chosen by Gianluca – an ex Head Somillier – to compliment both weather and food.  Our passion for life infuses everything we do, let us share the good life together!

I love this place!
The first time I went I had a delicious thin crust pizza cooked in their Italian wood-fired oven. So good that I’ve already been back.
The second time I had pasta, made on site that day, with homemade pesto & beans. It will make your toes curl!
Their strawberry sorbet (made because the strawberries were seasonal) was the essence of strawberries rather than sugar.
The staff are welcoming and you can see the kitchen & flames of the oven from the restaurant.
If you want to know just how good authentic, seasonal Italian food can be, then this place is a must.
Good selection of beer & wine too.

We went tonight. We all loved it. Amazing pizza and great authentic Italian food. I had seafood pasta and the others had pizza (mozzarella is amazing) and chicken Milanese. The staff were brilliant and welcoming!
