Great Atmosphere and great food!

Great food and the service was great. We came for my fathers 60th and with 20 of us we were a bit of a handful - but the food was great and the staff were accommodating.

Visiting a friend in Aberdeen and she had booked this for her birthday, and I can see why. Great atmosphere as soon as you enter the place. Prompt and efficient service throughout. Food was very tasty and in good quantities. We had 3 children with us who were able to have half portions. Left overs we took home in a... More

We had a lovely meal here, the staff remembered us from our previous visit, and made us feel so welcome. The food was excellent, and they were even happy to adapt a special to suit us better. That's a good thumbs up!! The staff are so friendly and willing to help. It makes you feel good just coming here!

This family run restaurant boasts a beautiful selection of Southern Italian cuisine. All freshly made a delightfully presented. Prices are reasonable for the quality on offer. If you're an avid quick lasagne fan then this will be too rich in flavour for you. Good selection of complimentary wines, beers and spirits

I love this place. We try to come each time we are up in Aberdeen. Very homely place. A little cramped at times, but just goes to show how popular it is. Love all their dishes and enjoy the complementary lemoncello drink.

Set just off Union Street, found this lovely restaurant and was able to get a table right away. Have tried to book this before and it was fully booked. Pleasant staff, fantastic food and could not fault the Irish Coffee - best one I have had for a very long time. Food was freshly cooked and served beautifully. Would recommend... More
