Great food and wine, overall ambiance accompanied by attentive staff what more could you ask for. A true gem in Dover's crown. This restaurant is head and shoulders above anything else in Dover and right up there with the best places in eat in Kent. 5 stars

The menu is quite extensive for an Italian restaurant and the food was very good indeed. Not the cheapest, but value for money. A nice enough atmosphere but could get a bit 'cozy' on a busy night because it is not a large place. Well worth a visit

What a fabulous little gem. The restaurant is small which kind of makes it feel exclusive. The food was amazing. The owner demonstrated the great hospitality skills that Italians are renowned for can't wait to come back.
