Good but not special

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.

Down staying in Cockermouth and came here for dinner. The staff were welcoming and attentive. We were shown to our table and offered a drink and then given the menus and told what the specials were for the evening. The food when it came was beautifully presented and was very good. The restaurant was very busy which gave it a... More

We were lucky to get a table as it appeared it was the evening of the Xmas lights turn on, even so a full restaurant on a Monday evening is a good sign. The chicken liver salad for starter was great and the 'special' of stuffed veal escalope was tasty if a little over cooked - for my liking. That... More

A nice restaurant, nice people, good food and not outrageous prices. You cannot ask for much more than that. We had lunch this week while visiting relatives in the area. My sister-in-law had the £8.50 lunchtime special of soup (on this day vegetable broth) and a pizza or pasta. She chose Linguini and was brought a very large portion, which... More

I always firstly rate a restarant by how busy it is. This was busy but the service was very good. Now to the food, we were a group of eight and no one had a bad meal. Quality and Quantity were first class. Will be back soon

Eaten here several times. It's a sound little place with a nice selection of Italian dishes and a fixed price menu which is excellent value for money. The staff have always been a joy here, just the right amount of friendly interaction but never intrusive. I rate the pizzas particularly highly. It has that kind of base that isn't to... More
