This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who lives in Bath and she was right to put it on a shortlist of the four best restaurants in the city. Only one word sums it up...... Awesome!

I am sometimes suspicious of restaurants which have such consistently good reviews. No need to be suspicious here. The food here is, as the name suggests, of the hearty and rustic variety, and is very well done. Tasty, generous proportions and authentic in style, a mainly traditional type menu, with a set of regularly changing specials. The staff were all... More

Absolutely amazing service, the food was phenomenal. Could not fault any of it. A lovely intimate feel as much so like being in a family members living room. Would recommend to anyone who is after legitimate Italian food!

A wonderful small Italian restaurant. First customers this wet January Sunday evening and a lovely welcoming atmosphere awaited us. The food was so tasty that no additional seasoning was needed. A few years ago we had lunch here and it is was wonderful then! Good to see it is still great. Recommended, do try :-)

A favourite spot of mine, welcoming staff, good atmosphere and outstanding food. There's something for everyone and weekly specials, a real taste of Italy in a secret and intimate setting.

Nice genuine people who obviously work very hard and care about your experience - the real thing, and... More
