Lovely meal.

We had a really nice meal here, very good Italian food. The only thing that wasn't great was that it was quite cold inside. We visited in winter and the heating had not been on before opening so it took a long while to warm up. Great staff and traditional Italian food.

We went as a party of 5. We were welcomed warmly and menus & drinks came to us quickly. I opted for the salmon and prawns (as did my daughter) which were lovely and fresh. Hubby opted for the whitebait which he said was delicious. Garnish was quite dated but it is an old style Italian. I can't remember what... More

Enjoyed a pre-concert meal here before venturing to the City Hall to see Blue on Easter Sunday. Food was lovely, couldn't fault any of it. Service was quick and accommodated a couple of fussy eaters (me being included). Deco is a little outdated but clean. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone who loves Italian food.

This is a relatively small Italian restaurant in the city centre. It was quiet on the day and time we went. Food came our quickly but there was nothing really special about it, I would say average at best. Service was also OK but nothing special. Would I be back? Probably not in a hurry as there are a lot... More

In the gastronomic desert of Sheffield I ended up in this restaurant. The restaurant is ok, nothing fancy, a classic trattoria you would find in the center of Italy. The starter was disappointing: fried calamari. The fried part was like 2mm thick! Too much! I was scared at that point but the Filetto Rossini was very good! And the grilled... More

Ate here before going to a show at the Lyceum Theatre having walked past many chain restaurants when we wanted food with that home cooked taste - it turned out to be a great choice. It's a small unassuming restaurant with no frills as other reviewers have mentioned - that for me is often a sign off good cooking so... More

A great authentic restaurant in the heart of the city. Ideal for visiting after seeing a show at the city hall. Try the fillet la gondola, so nice!

We had not booked on valentines night but was not to bothered. We tried a couple of places we walked past. My wife saw this place, I thought well lets try it. We got a table but only have 1.5 hours to eat as after it was fully booked. The waitress was very good, another even came and talked to... More

After an afternoon shopping my wife and visited this lovely little place. Not flash, looking a bit tired on the inside but great food and service never the less. My wife wanted to change some of the ingredients in her pasta dish, not a problem, chilli and olives added, no "I'll have to check" great customer service and when it... More
