Amazing!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. We were staying near by and found the restaurant on tripadvisor - it did not disappoint.

Great starters, friendly staff, good wine. I must have been to this restaurant 15 times since last reviewed and am never disappointed. Genuine Italian food, full of flavour and in good surroundings.

Great choices, just a bit different from your average high street Italian restaurant. My risotto was perfect with plenty of veg. Artichoke starter was unusual and completely delicious ( but not overwhelmingly large) . Impressed with the amount of veggie food for me, but also seemed to be some fresh fish specials and plenty to choose from for meat eaters.... More

We were in Cockermouth for the weekend and as usual we looked for an Italian restaurant. I was very pleased to see King Scallops on the menu, my favourite starter and the one I usually order. I was very disappointed when they came. For King Scallops they were very small and were virtually tasteless. They were not cheap at £8.95... More

This is a nice friendly town centre restaurant. It is warm and welcoming with a convivial atmosphere. The food is tasty and good value. It is what it says on the tin.
