I love this place!

Lovely place to go: nice decor (shame about the music), lovely atmosphere, spacious and great service! I had a lovely boar tortellini for my main. It was beautiful.๐Ÿ—๐Ÿ™Œ Can't wait to go again. Let's have some nice Vivaldi or some Puccini playing eh - not usher! ;-)

Large groups getting full works and wine flowing so that is where it is at. Felt totally ignored and glad to... More

With 11 adults and one adolescent all hungry and thirsty this was decent grub (save for a couple of overpriced starters and over cooked fillet) and decent enough service. Good ambience and clearly popular - it was packed. Personally, I find the turnover of table after 2 hours a bit of an insult - I get the reason why and... More

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We ordered focaccia romana between us to start and were a bit disappointed when a small serving of bread... More

Decent quality food at a good value price. Grilled fish was nicely cooked and a large portion. Restaurant was really full and had a lively atmosphere.

Visited on a Saturday teatime with family. Service very efficient and friendly. Food very good. Had a range of starters and pasta and pizzas for main. All very tasty, and one of the nicest Italians I've been to in brum. Restored my faith in eating out after disappointment of mpw.

I came here with my family for my brothers birthday. A really friendly staff welcomed us by the door and gave us a table by the window. The atmosphere is lovely and calm, really elegant so we thought it was going to be really expensive; suprise the prices were really reasonable. We had a garlic bread with mozzarella and bruschetta...
