The Best Italian Restaurant I have ever been to without a doubt. Recently visited by our Italian colleague who also confirmed our opinion. The service is also second to none you are made to feel at home. Absolutely perfect for that special occasion or if you just want to eat a perfect meal at the right price which is also... More

There’s nothing much I can add to the consensus that this is a fabulous place. We went a couple of weeks ago and managed to turn up around 5pm on a Wednesday and get an early table, we didn’t book but managed to get in. We also returned last Thursday 7pm (booking 2 weeks in advance). The waiters are friendly... More

Having grown up in Bath, but living now in NZ, to finally find this standard of restaurant in Bath is a long overdue relief. My brother travelled down from London and suggested he would book us in here, it was his first time as well. Everything you read in the reviews about service, quality of food and wine are right...

We were very lucky to get a booking on the back of a cancellation - we had one evening in Bath and this restaurant made it memorable!! From the welcome to the waiting staff and ultimately because of the magic of a proper Italian chef; we loved it all. I had the Bruschetta Classica, Calamari and the Rack of lamb-... More

We booked here after checking it out on T A. The only time available was 16:45 which was a bit earlier than we wanted, but when we got there we were impressed from start to finish. Firstly the setting is amazing, the service is great and the food is just brilliant. We'll done, truly excellent food at realistic prices.

I would like to say what a fantastic meal we had Sunday evening. We traveled from South Wales. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. We can't wait to return in November :) xXx

From making the reservation to saying goodbye to the staff we were very, very impressed with the service we received. All of the staff were friendly but not too over the top. The restaurant was clean, and had a warm atmosphere. The food was perfect. I ordered wine on arrival and it was served immediately as arranged. On the phone... More

We booked a table here based on tripadvisor recommendations and can wholeheartedly say that it deserves it's number one rating in Bath. The service was attentive and friendly without being over bearing; the food and wine were both outstanding. I chose the calve's liver and my partner the veal, both were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. The vaults setting is... More
