We visited the restaurant as part of a Christmas lunch from work. Granted there was a few of us but no side plates, we asked about the wine and wasn't given a wine menu so we just asked if they did a pino. One member of staff said it was the worst spag bog they had ever had. Tagalatelli was... More

Dear Sandy L, I am truly sorry you didn't enjoy your lunch especially if you found your tagliatelle cold. However you got some facts slightly distorted: it was not a Christmas lunch but an office lunch with the lunch menu (£6.95 for a main course and coffee or soft drink included) so there is no side plate or grissini or...

I have eaten here on several occasions and I can truly recommend this little restaurant. The chef / owner is Italian and he makes everything taste so very special. The pizzas are simply amazing. This and their relaxed, friendly atmosphere, make this place easy to come back to.

We tried this restaurant after finding it on Trip Adviser & have to agree it was really excellent. The ambience was very friendly, service faultless and the food was just great. Real authentic Italian food, one of the nicest Italian meals we have had for a long time - can thoroughly recommend the Pork Escalope. It's not a large restaurant... More

We ate here on recommendation from a friend, we weren't disappointed! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The restaurant is tiny but really cosy with a lovely open fire! Would definitely recommend

This Italian restaurant was recommended to us so we gave it a go. Service was friendly and fast. Not sure how they cope when it gets busy. Starters were tasty and my fillet steak was great. I had a taste of the veal in a very sweet sauce which wasn't to my taste. Wine was reasonably priced.

We were so impressed with this restaurant and cannot praise it highly enough. One of the best Italian meals we have had outside of Italy and such great service. So friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We were on a weekend break in Torquay and chose the restaurant from reviews we had read on Trip Advisor and a quick... More
