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

We had the lasagna and the sea food pasta with bruschetta to start. Everything was homemade and you can tell. Really delicious and fresh. Best part is the owners cook and serve you so you can get all the recipes! We bought two bottles of a great chianti there too. Really loved it!
