After reading on trip advisor that this was the place to eat I thought I'd ring and book a table. Started ringing at ten in the morning and got a recorded voice but no option to leave a message. Two and a half hours and ten calls later still no answer. We decided to try and walk in,to be told... More

Being in Bath for only two days, we rang to book an early dinner but as expected, they were full - but they insisted on taking my husband's phone number and didn't mind one bit that it was an international one. Within half an hour we had a phone call saying they had a cancellation and they would look forward... More

I visited the place because it's ranked very high on TA list. I have no regrets! We totally enjoy our meal, one of the best of our 2-week trip in UK. The restaurant is housed in a underground tavern, cosy environment. Advanced reservation needed. What impressed me most is their service, couldn't have been better. Highly recommended! Tip: it's not... More

This is a family run business who take customer service or should I say customer delight to another level. We arrived on spec at lunchtime for a table that evening & they managed to fit us in, it wasn't until later that I found out there's normally a two week wait to get a table here. The service we received... More

One of the most incredible restaurants that has exceptional standards and thoroughly deserves all the great feedback it receives.... Outstanding service, great staff, attention to detail is outstanding and what a team! A must visit in Bath and one of the most memorable Italian meals I have ever had.

On the off chance we visited this very quaint and hidden away gem of a restaurant during a weekend to Bath. We took our chances and turned up at the restaurant on a Saturday night without a reservation and based on numerous positive reviews from various sites. Unsurprisingly however on arrival however we were told that unfortunatley the restaurant was... More

Had a wonderful long weekend celebrating a special anniversary. Called in on the off chance, day before we wished to eat as came so highly recommended by locals, but always booked in advance. Explained situation to staff who took our number and called the following day with an early table reservation for us. What an experience, food fantastic - choice,... More

Exquisite and elegant Italian dining, great service, reasonable pricing, make reservations a couple of days ahead as it is popular! We couldn't get in for dinner but enjoyed lunch there instead. Just a bit strange for us to eat a heavy meal early in the day but were happy that we did.
