The food here is strong on flavour (especially the risotto and pasta dishes) and portion sizes are very generous (except, oddly the pizza which look quite small and are poor value). All the dishes we ate in our group were well balanced and tasty and for a mid-priced meal with an authentic range of Italian choices we were really pleased.... More

I always expect more when I go here. Menu hasn't changed in a long time and still nothing jumps out at me that I really fancy. I find myself choosing something i'll just like rather than look forward too. This time I had a pudding which I don't normally and this was very good. Staff are great though, very friendly.... More

Ate here the first night we were staying in the area and the food was great. Staff were really friendly and attentive, would definitely recommend going and we will go back if we are nearby again.

I had meatballs with tagliatelli, my wife had beef strips in tagliatelli, both with delicious sauce. In addition, we had sides of spicy potato wedges and thick chips. Lemon cheesecake was my chosen dessert and we had an excellent bottle of red wine. Everything that was served to us was perfectly cooked and presented and generous helpings too. Service was... More

I booked for ten of us for a birthday meal. We provided food orders in advance. The food was fantastic and service superb. Would definitely return when back in the area.

We arrived late into Cockermouth having driven from Norwich and were incredibly hungry. We hadn't booked anywhere and to be perfectly honest, chose this place as it looked fairly busy and was next to the cash machine :) We were a group of six and it was about 21:35 so we were very pleased when they agreed to seat us...

My partner received food poisoning from a risotto based meal and when confronted with this, the manager was completely dismissive and unapologetic, even going so far as to accuse me of lying. I was told that the menu had been changed the day before and that food poisoning was an impossibility. I have since heard of several other parties who... More

We stopped for a business dinner one night. We didn't have reservations but they fit us in anyway. We ordered a bottle of wine and it was quite good. Each of us ordered a different pasta dish and they were all very good.

We decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal out whilst staying in Cockermouth. This Italian restaurant is wonderful!! The service is spot-on. The staff are friendly, approachable, helpful & efficient. Everything on the menu was extremely tempting. Everything which came out of the kitchen looked delicious! I chose the tuna salad. It was so scrumptious that I had the... More
