Luckily I did not have a starter because, by the time my husband had eaten all of his calamari, he was so full that he struggled... More

We visited this restaurant in May and the food and service was excellent . I had the mussels for my main and they were mazing. This restaurant is good value for money and I would recommend visiting it while in RYE.

This is simply one of the best Italian meals we have ever had. We ate here twice in the same week, the staff were extremely attentive and efficient and the food was divine. The first time we just turned up on a busy Saturday night without a booking and were pleased to find that they were happy to accommodate us... More

We loved the platters of such magnitude of the most delicious seafood pasta - never to be forgotten. There was space for families with kids, and lovers staring into each others' eyes and plain food lovers like us.

We turned up on a busy Sunday evening, four adults, two kids and three dogs- could they seat us? No problem. We were given a table in the garden and really well looked after by a very helpful waiter. The garlic bread we had to start was delicious and we should have ordered two. It disappeared in no time. The... More

We had some brilliant food here!!! The staff seemed to be working so hard and got everything we asked for straight away! The only thing is a pasta dish with goats cheese had a lot of goats cheese on; not a bad thing but just be wary if you don't like too much of it!
