Had a meal with two friends, the food was nice although I felt the seabass could have done with some potatoes with it for the price. Unfortunately the restaurant has no soft furnishings which made it incredibly noisy - my ears are still ringing. Service was a bit slow but it wasn't really a problem for us as we weren't... More

Had a lovely meal here recently; the pizzas are insane - so tasty and huge! The garlic bread with mozzarella was also fantastic and well worth trying! Wine was good and overall pricing of food was okay, if a little expensive - only 2 or 3 pizzas were under £10 and the garlic bread nearly £5 per portion but that... More

Great authentic Italian brother and sister operated restaurant. We had pizzas which came from a proper oven and for £9-11 were superb. Some great real Italian cantina wines not generally available in the UK supported with authentic Italian service. Highly recommended.

Excellent meal and very good service. A very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere in this lovely Italian restaurant in the heart of Guildford. The Penne Pollo Ross was very tasty.

First visit tonight and I would highly recommend. In fact - I'm going to take my daughter back next week. A family visit with my 5 year old girl and the staff were great with her, addressed her and spoke with her genuinely. The good was great - king prawns to start, pizzas for main and sorbet, tiramisu and fudge... More

Visited as a small group for my friend's birthday as we didn't want to eat in a chain restaurant and this was one of the few restaurants in central guildford that we hadn't tried. We were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our table. The overall feel of the restaurant was nice, it was a buzzing atmosphere on... More

We visited here for my partner's birthday before Christmas as we wanted to try somewhere independent rather than a chain. The food was exceptional and one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. The service for food was really excellent and our meals came out quickly and all together for such a large group. I do feel we could... More

really nice menu - simple food made very well. Family run restaurant where service is terrific. I had the linguine with clams (excellent) and my wife had the chicken salad. The wine menu was extensive with plenty of choice for any budget. would recommend this place - but i would recommend booking
