We went to this restaurant for the first time for a late lunch yesterday (Saturday) and really enjoyed the great food and friendly atmosphere. The food was well cooked and the service was good - with a smile! Will be coming back and have already recommended it to friends! Note for next visit - choose a smaller dish so I... More

Simply the best Italian restaurant in Tunbridge Wells. Small and cosy, wonderful friendly staff and first class food. Max and Molly are wonderful hosts- you instantly feel like you are on holiday in Italy. As the evening progresses you start to feel like one of the family enjoying a meal cooked with care and love. Cannot recommend it highly enough!

My wife and I have walked past this place (on the other side of the road) for years. Always thought it was a deli/cafe and that was it. How wrong were we. I googled Italian restaurants in Tunbridge Wells and it popped up. No pretention, just amazing Italian food and hospitality. We went for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The... More

This is a brilliant Deli - cum - restaurant. Deli by day - it also does lunch - and the anti pas to dish is heaven. Run by a lovely couple - Max is Italian and he brings his home town to this part of Tunbridge Wells. They have delicious, tasty foodie evenings where he will often invite people form... More

I’d walked past Max’s quite a few times and it always looked too small to do meals, however a move of the deli counter revealed it to have quite a few tables. It’s still small, but what a great find. We stopped by for lunch on this warm and sunny Saturday, were warmly greeted and seated at a table in... More

I have passed by this little trattoria so many time but today I went in. What a hidden gem, I had the Mozzarella, avocado, tomatoes and super leaves, all dressed with balsamic vinegar, just right for lunch. I asked for water to drink and Max said tap water? well that's a first in a restaurant. I listened whilst Max was... More

A superb evening of fine dining and great wine. Max was both interesting and informative and the kitchen certainly did us proud. For a true taste of Italy combined with great hospitality you need look no further than this gem in RTW.

Happened upon this hidden gem thanks to Google Maps and I'm so pleased we did. This is a jewel in an desert of identikit chains. Local, family-owned with food made almost in front of you - what is not to like. The prices reflect the care and quality of both staff and food, and the result is more than worth... More

This really does feel like the locals' favourite place to eat in a small Italian town. Very cosy and slightly chaotic - which adds to the atmosphere. My children shared a pizza which was very cheesy (in a good way!) and OH and I both went for a pasta dish. I agree that the portions aren't vast but they are... More
