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

been eating here regularly since moving to Cockermouth including our 40th anniversary meal with friends last year. Nice weather today so we walked down into town for lunch. £8.50 gets you soup and pasta / pizza - you wont need anything else after. Today the soup was chorizo and bean (with a slice of olive bread) which was very filling.... More

We are glad to live in a place where we can make regular trips to this excellent restaurant. We often recommend it to visiting friends and people celebrating. The mix of excellent food with delicious flavours makes this not your average Italian. In fact from the excellent service, well placed tables and artwork, huge menu choice with specials, and enjoyable... More
