We rely on the quality of our ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation.We also like to offer traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist because we strongly believe in those 'Sapori' (flavours).With our finest ingredients coming from Italy, and all of our fresh vegetables, seafood and meats sourced locally, we are able to ensure high quality dining that will exceed your expectations.We invite you to have a fun and relaxed dining experience with us.Service hours are as follows:Lunch hours: 12:00-14:30.

Went to this restaurant with my family and had an amazing time! The waiters were very friendly, food was superb and it felt like we were in a restaurant in Italy! Would recommend to make a reservation in advance (made a reservation 2 weeks advance for a Wednesday evening and there was limited choice for times). Very reasonable pricing for... More

Brilliant!! Excellent!! Wonderful!! Divine!! A hidden Italian paradise in Bath. Note: you will to need to book well in advance and it is truly worth the wait. We experienced fine food and drink. The staff were friendly without being intrusive and ever attentive to your needs. A restaurant not to be missed. Get booking.

I completely understand why this restaurant is rated number one in Bath! The service is impeccable, the food absolutely delicious, and I loved all the extra details. I hope I have another chance to return. Can't recommend this place enough!

My wife and I visited this wonderful little restaurant to celebrate my 37th birthday. The restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who lives in Bath. We rang up a few days before our visit and managed to book a table for lunch (we were hoping for an evening meal but were informed they were fully booked). When we... More

An amazing experience. Customer service exemplary. Food so gorgeous that I don't think I actually have the words to describe it. From the moment we were seated in the beautiful venue and being served gorgeous dishes we knew the evening would be amazing. All the staff treated us as like royalty. We left feeling that we had eaten some of... More

The excellent reviews on Trip Advisor are fully justified by our experience here last week. Warmest of welcomes , very attentive service, excellent food ( best risotto ever) and great atmosphere in the stone vaulted basement restaurant situated a couple of minutes from Bath Abbey and the Roman Baths. Good wines too from a short list. Booking essential . If... More

Came here for lunch for my husbands birthday. Everything was absolutely fabulous. Our waiter managed to work out that we were there for a special occasion and all the waiters sang happy birthday! Embarrassing but in a good way. The food was perfect, the service excellent. Can't wait to return. Would thoroughly recommend.

I'd advise anyone visiting Bath to visit this venue. We made the mistake of not booking but luckily thanks to the very accommodating and helpful staff they squeezed us in. It was busy even on a Sunday. SO BOOK IT IN ADVANCE. The food and wine were fantastic and the wait was very reasonable. Set below the beautiful buildings the... More
