Not given the warmest of welcomes but the food made up for it. We thought we would try this restuarant having read the good reviews. We were seated upstairs in the restuarant and the young waiter who served us was very good. The food was very good and the sardines were fantastic (with no nasty little bones). Highly recommended.

A simple traditional Italian restaurant. Prices are reasonable but portions are not large and neither is flavor. I had a butternut squash calzone, which was fine but not overwhelming. Wine was nice and service was efficient but staff were not particularly smiley or chatty. I wouldn't return when there is a vast number of better restaurants in Cambridge.

This is a straightforward Italian restaurant serving relatively simple food at very reasonable prices. The pizzas are not enormous but taste delicious and the risottos are perfectly acceptable without being haute cuisine. Good wines and coffee, too.Service is gently unobtrusive and the whole experience leaves you with a good feeling about the place.

I visited with some friends for a rare night out child free. The food was fabulous. There was 4 people in our group, we each ordered something different and everyone raved about how great their food was. The staff were lovely also. Would love to go back.

In a city bedevilled by chains, this is a truly independent and gorgeous Italian restaurant. Unpretentious from the outside, the fool is authentic, good value and prepared with Italian love of food. Also a great wine selection, with some great one-offs.

If you want to feel like "la nonna" prepared your food, then you should go to this place. Real italian comfort food, true and honest flavors, not the fancy fusion types nor the chain types. The best canelloni I've tried in the UK. The service is not remarkable, but the food...just try it because of the food, you won't regret... More

Visited here on the 7th November for my birthday and I wasn't disappointed. I had been meaning to try this place for a long time and I was so glad I did! It was a fantastic evening. I had the buffalo mozzarella starter, which could have been a bit bigger for the price, but was still excellent. The mozzarella was... More

Just walked in this restaurant for my birthday dinner and it was a nice choice. Looking plain from outside, the food and service are wonderful at a fair price. Love the Risotto ai frutti di mare, which is so tasty, and the amount of seafood is even more than the rice. The set menu is good value if you like... More
