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

Called on spec, with a group of colleagues, for lunch between business meetings. Wide choice of hot Italian dishes available over the counter, making service swift. Tasty pasta and pizza, excellent coffee or soft drinks, all served with a smile and friendly banter. Choice of spacious indoors or sunny outdoor seating. Exactly what was required in the middle of a... More

This genuine Italian restaurant has been long established in Exeter. Expect a family meal rather than fine dining. The lunchtime specials are excellent value and there is a changing selection of pizzas, pasta and salads. Also a good place for coffee, cakes and filled baguettes; this restaurant is a popular lunchtime venue for local workers. Families are welcome and there... More
