Fine Dining!

We had a wonderful meal on recommendation of our daughter, a regular diner here. We understand why she loves it! This is Italian food at its best with fine attention to detail and excellent personal service. We were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. My husband had haddock... read more

My second time here - once in the evening and today lunch - on business trips to Cardiff. It's a cracking little restaurant that has the authentic feel of a trattoria - not very formal but nonetheless a place for proper dining. The manager is really friendly and the service is very efficient. Most of all, the food is really... More

I have visited this restaurant quite frequently and shied away from posting a review because I didn't want to make the place too attractive to potential visitors! The food here is traditional Italian cooking and not a pizza or lasagne to be had. It is always freshly cooked and delicious. Frequently you are given a free glass of prosecco/ olives/... More

Heard good reports about this restaurant so decided to visited Cardiff for the weekend, watch the rugby and treat my wife to a good meal. I booked nearly 3 months in advance knowing that it was match day. We duly arrived at the restaurant to be ushered upstairs and were seated at the top of the stairs, next to the... More

My wife and I eat here once or twice a year. The food is of consistently high quality and we have never had the slightest cause to criticise it. On our last visit, the service was first rate too. The prices have remained competitive over the years - as a consequence, the restaurant now offers even better value for money... More

Food absolutely delightful with customer service to match. A wonderful menu with fresh and authentic Italian taste, the menu is small but something for everyone, a good sign food is cooked to...

My Lamb was excellent whilst my partner found her Pasta to be tough and somewhat stodgy. Limited menu so you need to be choosy, if there is nothing to your liking, then suggest you look elsewhere. Very Italian so do not be surprised by tables being close together and the noise levels high. Service is efficient and the wine list... More
