Visited on Saturday night with no reservation but very helpful and found us a table by moving things around a bit. Food was a bit disappointing, garlic bread not very garlicky, and the sauce with the delicious prawns also bland. Tuna and chicken were good but priced a bit toppish. Not bad at all but probably better value elsewhere for... More

A really good authentic Italian restaurant with real cared for food. Service not perfect, but the food done all the talking.

We went here for a birthday dinner. Food is incredibly expensive for what it was, spending £100 on 2x 2 course meals and a few drinks. Most of us (16 of us in total) didn't get the food we ordered, wrong sauce or sides. Service wasn't that great, after our meal no one returned to ask us if we wanted... More

This is a family run Italian restaurant with a traditional Italian Menu , all the food is fresh and cooked from scratch . My wife has allergies and her courses were adapted so she could eat what she wanted . I am fussy with wine and they took their time going through the wine list to accommodate my taste and... More

Ok so we did not have a booking and they made room for us. That is the only highlight! Three different people served us, not one seemed interested in us. We both had pasta courses which were totally devoid of any taste, in fact we swapped plates and they tasted the same! The house wine, I am sure they mixed... More

Three friends and I met up for a meal at this restaurant. We had pre-booked, not without difficulty as the English of the person on the other end of the phone could have been better, Oh well, at least it would be genuine Italian.Our welcome was warm enough and we were led to our table. I would estimate that the... More

Visited this long-established Portsmouth restaurant for the first time on a wet Sunday evening, place was nearly empty and reminded me of places I thought had died out in the early 1980's. Starters of garlic bread and bruschetta totally unremarkable - the bruschetta was just some buttered toast topped with tinned tomato pieces (for about a fiver!). The main course... More
