We visited this restaurant on a weekend night in early December. We had heard some positive commentary about this place and as a result, we decided to give it a go. However out experience left a lot to be desired in terms of poor service & mediocre food. We tend to eat out regularly and would visit many restaurants both... More

Food was bland, and overpriced no atmosphere and there was even a hair in my food. Which to be honest not much fuss was made about. I had the cannelloni it was dry and lacked flavor disappointing compared to when I visited a few years ago.

The décor, ambience, night time view, food & wine - you could really think you are in Italy. Typical Italian home cooked food at it's best. This is NOT a pasta house - it serves proper authentic Italian food. Flavours are divine - like something in Masterchef. Starters mains, desserts - all fresh cooked and home made. We were a... More

My wife and I go regularly, it's always a very enjoyable experience. The food is wonderful, and the staff make you feel very welcome. Fresh fish always available and they do an excellent steak. The wine list is superb!! Totally recommended.

A beautiful restaurant that is relaxed yet elegant. The food was lovely and well presented and there was alot of attention paid to detail. An unexpected bonus was a great view from the conservatory. The staff were knowledgeable and very courteous. Highly recommend a visit.

Unfortunately both meals we got, were pretty much tasteless. Especially the lamb was very dry although it was ordered as medium. Albeit the staff was very nice, the service was rather slow, considering that we were almost the only customers in the restaurant. The house wine was good.

One of the top places I have ever eaten out at in Derry. You'll not find many places with delicious food with the great service of the waitresses and the general management. I was welcomed when I first stepped through the door by Claudio who was very nice and made the atmosphere of the place seem relaxed yet lively. The... More
