Fabulous

The food is amazing I know it's Italian but this was the best steak I have ever tasted, cooked to perfection, and the red wine was to die for. The staff are really helpful and the service was first class.

After reading the other TripAdvisor reviews, my partner and I thought we'd try this place as we were attending an event in Cirencester one evening. The antipasto platter for two consisted of 4 tiny slices of toasted bread, one cut-up piece of flavourless mozzarella, and a selection of poor quality Italian salamis--I've never left so much on my plate!

Visiting the local area and wanted to find a nice independent Italian, saw this restaurant on trip advisor and the good reviews did not disappoint. We were a bit sceptical when we walked down a small side alley to get to the entrance to get into the restaurant but the food and atmosphere is everything you could want from a... More

Had calamari which was tender, also had a pizza which was a very nice size and tasty. Very good service and very attentive and friendly staff. Better than pizza express next door. If want a proper pizza come here.

Very busy restaurant - charming and efficient staff and the best steak I've had in years. Manageable menu but plenty of choice for every taste. Great buzz in the restaurant - quite a few pre Christmas parties- but we didn't wait too long. Wine list short but interesting - we loved the Primitivo. We will definitely return on our next...

Food is delicious, I highly recommend their classic carbonara. Portion sizes are more than what I expected for the price and their chocolate desserts are to die for! Apart from the female staff the two gentlemen make the visit worth it in itself
