Lovely food, nicely served. Good choice of menu. Located near the Royal Crescent in a quiet pedestrianised street.

Simple menu full of delicious options. Our family of four each found something we loved. My wife had the saltimboca which was fabulous. I recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially families with children.

The food is consistently good. If you sit up stairs the chef is preparing it all fresh in the tiny kitchen. I'm not sure how they manage but it's great. There are always a good selection of genuine specials at dinner and lunch. Great Italian food at it's best. Some tasty wine on the well priced wine list. Ask for... More

The service was good but the food was below average and expensive for what you get. We had a plaice special which was sloppy and contained hardly any fish, our pasta dish was ok but nothing better then I... More
