My husband booked a table for my Birthday on the 21.02.2015. Sadly we were ignored by the waiting staff for 10 mins - then had another party push by us in the very small corridor where you stand to be waited to be seated - where the waitress immediately went to them. After she had dealt with them I commented... More

How many restaurants are there where your waiter is also your chef. What a fantastic small Italian restaurant. Vincenzo was the perfect host, offering alternative menu options and being warm and friendly throughout the evening. We will become even more regular diners from now on. Thank you Vincenzo!

Have just eaten one of the most delightful Italian meals in many a long time. There is none of the pretention or nonsense of a chain. The food presented was non-gimmick, good Italian cooking served in not inconsiderable portions. This is a superb bijou restaurant serving exceptional cooking at a very reasonable price ( 2 starters, 2 main course, bottle... More

We were on a short break in Lincoln & wanted somewhere family friendly & not chained. We found this place on TripAdvisor & decided on a walk around town to check it out for dinner later in the day. They were closed when we passed by, but the prospect of dining in a small restaurant that was by all appearances... More

I've been here on a couple of occasions now in the evening. Once with friends and once with family. It's a tiny place which you would walk straight past and dismiss as a cafe if you were not aware. The service has always been friendly and very welcoming, taking the time to come and speak to diners if not too... More

Seriously impressed by this little restaurant. Food was fresh, tasty and well priced. The cannelloni was one of my favourite meals of recent memory. My husband thought the cheesecake was amazing. We were only in Lincoln for the one night but if we ever return we would definitely go back to this little slice of Italy!

We visited Lincoln this weekend and chose to book a table for 2 at this Italian restaurant based on reviews and walking distance from our hotel. It's a lovely little place, very cosy and intimate. The service was great from the waitresses and from (I think) the owner, you can tell he is very proud of his establishment. Now, the... More

A much more authentic Italian, I feel bad mentioning it in the same sentence as prezzo and carluccios but if you wanted a little taste of Italy this is the place to go, me and my partner had a beautiful meal, friendly service, an unusual setting as it feels as if you are in someone's home but I feel this...
