Visited today 30th August mid afternoon. Appeared to be short staffed but reasonably quiet. Food was nice but nothing special. Lack of chicken in penne arribata which was quite bland after requesting a spicier version. Anti pasta which consisted of meat and salad was very filling. Have visited this establishment previously when the food and service was better

We had not booked but they made a special effort to find us a table and explained the table would be needed again in 90 minutes. We had no problem with this. The waitress was most helpful as we ordered and each course was delivered in good time. We were not rushed. The food was very good and generously portioned.... More

My friend and I were seated at the very top of the restaurant, up a very elegant staircase. I think the building used to be a church, and it has been very tastefully converted. The menu has a very good selection, and I chose the chicken in gorgonzola sauce. It was absolutely gorgeous, and the portion size was perfect. It... More

We went a couple of years ago, it was OK but they got my order wrong, but the food was sill OK. We decided to go again this year and duly booked. Six of us, Me, wife, daughter, SIL and two grand daughters. The table was ready for us, and we were quickly given the menu and gave our drinks... More

We went here because I insisted on pizza. And I wasn't disappoitned. A busy summer's saturday night meant popping by without a reservation was a potential slip up. The manager seated us on the basis we gave the table back by 9:00pm which wasn't a problem, and although the place was only a quarter full when we arrived it was... More

I visited here in 2014 and had a wonderful meal and couldn't praise it enough, however, I visited again on holidays in 2015 and it was a completely different experience. It was so bad that I have crossed this restaurant off my list of places to eat out for good. The service was the worst thing. An older man with... More

We visited here on our last night of a short break in Whitby, Very glad we booked as it was very busy but this did not affect the service. The staff were very friendly, My wife had a seafood risotto,I had linguini with mussels, both were very good and obviously freshly cooked, good portion sizes, and reasonably priced too.

Went to this restaurant with my husband, staff were excellent, friendly & polite. My meal was not to my liking as the chicken was a bit dry, they could not apologise enough & offered a different meal or a fresh chicken. I decided to stick with my original meal & received a totally freshly cooked dush which was superb. Hubby... More
