This was a real shame as the food was lovely but the place was so cold we had to stay in our coats all evening. They said they were trying to heat the restaurant but they didn't try very hard with one tiny fan heater placed to heat a large party and no other diners.

We went in a party of five. We all enjoyed the food, the service was pleasant, but we got progressively cold. OK it was December, but in Cornwall not Siberia! There was a small floor heater near our table, which helped, but towards the end this was removed to thaw some newly arrived guests.

My wife and I enjoyed a really good meal here. The foods was great, with lots to chose from and the service was excellent It wasa Thursday and we were expecting it to be quiet, but it was busy enough to have a buzz. All in all, thoroughly recommended. We'll certainly be coming back the next time we're in Newlyn.

Had dinner with my wife and 2 friends. My wife was cold and I agree it could have been a bit warmer in the restaurant. The service was very good, very friendly staff, I couldn't fault the service at all. The menu was good, not overly exciting but plenty to chose from and priced fairly. The portions were on the...

Me and my partner came here for our anniversary on the 19th October. The service we received was excellent, we were greeted by the waitress and promptly taken to our table. I could not have asked for better service. I would highly reccoment the Italian kitchen, and will definitely be coming here again. First class staff and service!

Along with many of my family and friends I have been eating here for many years, and loved the food and service. We held my fathers's 80th birthday meal here this week and I was appalled. The food was dreadful, one of the worst meals I've ever had. Most of the party came away severely disappointed. No one complained on... More

This restaurant has good décor, a good menu and good food but the service was excellent. The two waitresses and probably the owner were very friendly and very helpful. As for the food, our starters and my wife's 'calzone' were very good, my main was a seafood linguine special which was over-priced and mostly contained squid. I would definitely go... More

we stumbled on this place when out for a walk and the food was delicious. The service was excellent too considering there was only 2 waiting staff on. They have all the traditional Italian dishes, pasta and pizzas etc (my other half went for the carbonara which he loved!) and they also have a good selection of other dishes, I... More

Just fancied an Italian and saw this as we drove to Penzance. We booked for the evening for four of us and they managed to squeeze us in. They had a table of 16 schoolgirls from Ascot with their teachers so we were lucky we got in just before they ordered!! Lovely décor inside, very cosy but spacious with some... More
