Meal with mates.

Always great meal, prob go 2 or 3 times a year, with friends and we always let's go somewhere different but never do as so nice! Very small restaurant and very popular, so booking essential. If you have mobility probs ask for a table downstairs. X

This small restaurant looks like the restaurant in 'Love Actually when Colin Firth proposes to the Portugese lady. We love going. The food is always delicious and the service good. A particular favourite with my sons is the mixed grill.

Very good and would go back. Excellent wine selection and very knowledgeable about what they have to offer. Mainly Italian wines grouped by region.

We sailed in to Dover yesterday and found this small Italian restaurant. The food was fresh and the host was outstanding. Friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend this venue. Would definitely return.

Certainly a very popular restaurant - maybe too busy for poor chap running everything on his own. That said food was great, reasonable value, great atmosphere, but just very odd not to see pizza, spaghetti Bolognese or minestrone soup on an Italian menu. Not to worry - we had a good evening.
