This is a lovely Italian restaurant. we were looking for something special as we were stopping in Whitby for the weekend to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We booked in advance and were told on the phone we would be upstairs as they were quite busy (which wasn't a problem). We had never been before and to be honest... More

Staff were friendly and efficient. Extensive menu... More

Brilliant meal in a fabulous busy Italian Restaurant. How the elderly waiter can be described as grumpy is beyond us. Attentive professional and lovely in every way. So good we are going back Saturday.

The service was fast and friendly. I ordered the bruschetta caprese which was absolutely delicious, I could of had... More

We were shown to our table upstairs which was nice and quiet as we have always sat downstairs. We both ordered lasagne and garlic bread to share... More
