My family and i went last night 24/01/15,, last minute decision without booking. The manager was really busy but managed to accomodate a table for us, we had a superb meal all freshly prepared and so tasty. Service was great even though they were packed out. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and at last Ramsgate has a jewell in the crown... More

Had a lovely lunch here today with two friends. Had their set lunch which was very good value and a carafe of their house wine which tasted great and was good value to. Service was excellent and for ladies who like to lunch and talk we were not hurried. The view over Ramsgate harbour was an added bonus. Looking forward... More

A great setting and with the right table splendid views across the harbour. Menu is fairly standard Italian - mainly pasta and pizza, with a few inventive twists. Service is very friendly and attentive and some unusual wines and beers are available. Would recommend for lunch.

We enjoyed the food, and only afterwards discovered they also do gluten-free pasta dishes if you ask beforehand - will remember for our next visit. Staff were helpful, cheerful, and managed a variety of customers very well. Loos were clean, well lit, and we didn't have to wait too long for our meal even though they were very busy on... More
