Actually, my mate, Dave Worthington (aka Worthy) had driven up to see me, and collect some items from my shop. I insisted we visit here for the splendid Farfalle with Swordfish and roasted vegetables... Thanks Mary and crew, he loved it all as well. RicardoPJ

Found this restaurant whilst visiting Guildford in December. It is a little off the beaten track and we came across by accident but am glad we did. The staff are so friendly and attentive. We picked one of the special pasta dishes and a pizza. The pasta was delicious and the pizza was huge with a lovely thin, crispy crust.... More

I was surprised to see a couple of reviews mentioning that the service was 'disorganised'. We found the opposite, although they were busy and it was a little slow. The entire dining area was served by two cheerful and helpful waitresses. I went with a friend and her two young sons who were warmly welcomed, Italian style, rather than just... More

We had a dinner in Shardana this week with a really international team, 20 people including an Italian guy as well. The interior of the restaurant is cozy and nice. The service was kind but extremely slow, the Italian colleague, Fabio mentioned that it is normal, no hurry at time of dinner in an Italian place ;) I selected a... More

I am 64 years old and have eaten in lots of restaurants all over the world. The farfale with Swordfish and black olives/ vegetables that I have just enjoyed is easily the best combination of texture and taste that I have consumed for many years. The first time that I ever spoke to Jonathan (owner and chef) he told me... More

Authentic Italian (Sardinian) family run restaurant. We had 3 pizzas all very good. The dessert special was lovely too. I wouldn't say it's most organised place in the world, so may need to be armed with a bit of patience. But still, I go prefare an authentic restaurant than a standard chain!
