Lunch time happiness

most authentic Italian food we have ever eaten outside Italy. Go back time and again and it never fails to deliver in taste, value and choice. Very helpful friendly staff who can answer all questions regarding the menu, wine is okay, beers coffees and soft drinks all good.

Ordered the lasagna and whole garlic bread. The lasagna was read-meal-esque and lacked flavour and substance but the garlic bread was probably the best I've had! It also reminded me too much of my old school canteen when I walked in. Only been the once so my judgement is only based on that visit and that meal.

I went here for the first time today and I will be visiting every Saturday now, food was great and the Italian host was very helpful and full of energy and made me my wife and daughter very welcome, the place is very clean and very reasonably price for great tasty food, just a tip don't look at the menu...

Love this place! Very friendly staff, service with a smile and makes you feel valued. Always good range of vegetarian options, today we were offered 2 types of pasta and 1 risotto on one plate! Absolutely delicious food, very good value, nice relaxed atmosphere.

These are my last few days here in Exeter, so today I decided to try this restaurant near High Street. It's like a self-service where you can choose lot of typical italian dishes such as salads, pasta and pizza. I had only an half pizza and pasta with meat, aubergines and tomatos. Pizza is very much far from italian standards... More

Myself and my partner have been visiting this lovely place run by a fantastic, welcoming family for years. We popped in for lunch on Valentine's Day and as usual were not disappointed. The choice of Italian dishes on offer is broad, exceptionally fresh and always filling. Nothing is too much trouble for the owner/managers and even on the bleakest Winter... More

What a lovely evening! We booked a family table for 6.30pm after reading fantastic reviews. We were not disappointed ! Sadly we were the only diners but this did not ruin the atmosphere! We could not have been made to feel more welcome than we were! The service was the best, warm & friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We... More

I have only been here for breakfast on a few occasions so can't comment on the main Italian courses, however it is extremely good value and also good quality, and they aren't frugal with the portion sizes like lots of places. For two huge cooked brunches with drinks on the weekend we paid just £11. The coffee is also exceptionally... More

We stumbled upon this great authentic Italian on our way back to the Car park on the Quay. I'm not usually an Italian food fan but this has definitely changed things! We were offered a choice of Fresh dishes with various Salads, i don't know the name of the Pasta and Sauce we had but the Plates were empty in... More

A local business, not part of a chain, they really care about their customers and will do everything possible to make you feel at home, if it means making another zingara (delicious savoury light snack) or bruschetta and bringing it to your table, then that is what they will do. Pizza, pasta and salads all made freshly on the premises,... More
