At last, a good waitress

We had eaten here on our last visit to Windermere and weren't very impressed with the service or the manager but as the food was good we decided to give it another try. Our waitress was very efficient, served us with a smile and appologised that the kitchen had run out of penne pasta and offered... read more

Beautiful meal and different things to try. Pricey but worth it. Make sure if you are more than two people that you book especially at weekends

Didn't have a booking but was welcomed in by the manager the place was busy and seemed to be running seamlessly. Aranchini Scilliana to start gorgeous, pizza of parma ham tomato rocket was really good and puddings were a fine finish to the meal tirimisu and vanilla panacotta topped with raspberries yum. Couldn't fault my experience here

Fantastic pizza. Wood fired pizza over and food tasted so fresh. Waitress went out of her way to look after our family and di so with humour.

My boyfriend booked this for our trip to the lakes and what a little gem it was. Greeted by a welcoming and friendly manager in a beautiful setting. The staff couldn't be more helpful and the food was 5*. Would recommend the garlic bread make sure its to share tho as it's massive. Lovely atmosphere. We will be back.

Booked here for our anniversary night out. Tried to book for 8pm, but was told they were fully booked, but could fit us in at 6.30. Arrived 10 minutes early and got shown to a lovely table in the corner. Now, before I go further, let me explain about the 'double waitress syndrome' - there were obviously two waitresses allocated... More

We had a last minute decision to go here on a Friday night. They were very well booked up, but the service was faultless, and the food was really delicious. We shared olives and garlic bread to start, then I had a pizza, and my husband had salmon. Both were just perfect. We had a bottle of white wine with... More
