2.0 Twin Spark hunting on idle

Hi everyone,

I have a problem with my 156 2.0 twin spark. Once warm the car will hunt around at idle for a few seconds before settling down to a smooth speed. It doesn't seem to have any other running issues and I recently got 40mpg out of it on a run. But when driving around town the constant hunting at idle is getting a little irritating. Could anyone suggest some possible fixes?

Cheers in advance!
