Having spent a lot of time in Italy we were very happy to find this lovely Italian restaurant and frequent it regularly. Busy even on a Monday. If you are looking for good value Italian cooking I would recommend trying this restaurant.

Ate here for lunch today as the other three places we tried were heaving. This place was tucked away down an alley and virtually empty. Met by a friendly waiter and had a very pleasant meal. Good value for money. My only note to the waiter was please don't assume the change is your tip; it was but we found... More

I've been here a few time in the last six months -- with my partner and with friends.The outside is unprepossessing but the food and the friendly (if leisurely) service more than compensate.

Ok, unless there are 2 Piazza Fontanas on Castle Street, there's something not quite right here! A walk down the alley to this restaurant leads to a upvc door with a hand written sign on the inside welcoming the diner in. Once inside, it has a feel of a characterless portakabin in one visual direction, and a badly finished conservatory... More

Me and my work colleagues visited this restaurant for a celebration dinner! The restaurant is so lovely, and very inviting. We all had 3 courses each, which they were all good prices! I had salami and cheese which was delicious! The staff are all very welcoming and friendly! The restaurant is hidden away, and is definitely worth a visit! And... More

We ordered the vegetable pizza and it was excellent. Lots of different vegetables perfectly cooked, just the right amount of cheese and what was obviously a freshly prepared base. Will definitely be coming back again. The staff were very friendly too.

We stopped in Cirencester on the way back from a Saturday morning of shopping and chose PF as we had enjoyed our first visit there some time ago. The food choices were a seafood starter and mozzarella garlic bread, followed by fillet steak and veal, all of which was well prepared and tasty. The cost, which included 2 glasses of... More
