Amazing

Everytime I eat that pollo a la milanese, I get tears of happiness. Service is amazing although you need to book in advance, try anything! Every dish is amazing. Pizzas are glorious.

A little gem of a place. I am always disappointed with the quality of so called 'authentic' Italian restaurants in Cardiff. Same over priced portion controlled food in every establishment. So what a refreshing change to eat here for the first time, and actually enjoy an extremely good meal. The food is fresh, innovative, tasty and perfectly priced. Great atmosphere... More

This is a small restaurant with a big personality. Friendly, happy staff served the most delicious food. I had a pizza which was cooked in the log fired oven, it was the best pizza I have ever tasted. Reasonable prices. I would recommend without hesitation.

Eat here often as food is great and very reasonably priced! Loads of choice on menu and always have specials board. Can get very warm as restaurant is very small and usually very full- only down side! Booking is a must as gets really busy. Great all round!

The best meal I've had in Cardiff. Real Italian food in a great atmosphere and for a great price. Both the pasta and pizza were delicious, especially accompanied by a glass of wine. For 2 glasses of wine, a pizza and a pasta the bill came to £30.00 which I thought was very reasonable for the quality and portion size.... More

Came here with my sister and brother in law prior to a Shalamar concert on advice from them, they are regular visitors to this cozy little restaurant. It did not disappoint. I had a mushroom bruschetta to start and a prawn, chilli and garlic linguine for main. I love spicy food so asked if they could add as much chilli... More

This is a lovely little, authentic italian restaurant. Its quite small and booking can be tough, but the food is lovely and the waiting staff are nice.

When I ate there, all was perfect. Good food, nice staff, nice atmosphere, the price is what I expected. The local is small, maybe 7 tables I think, and if you want enjoy usuallt you must to book before. Perfect for couple dinners

This is a very popular Italian restaurant in Cardiff. We tried to book it for both Friday and Saturday evening but they were fully booked. We succeeded in booking for lunch on the Saturday but only at noon and we had to be out by 1.30 pm, which was ok with us. I had a lovely starter - a mushroom... More
