Hubby and I opted for the pizza, amazing flavours and so tasty. Decided to go for the good old tiramisu after, and that was heavenly. Never even knew this restaurant was tucked away in Dundee until I saw a deal on Groupon. So glad we found it and will definitely be going back. Never mind ciao, it will be buonasera... More

Most grateful that we were allowed to extend the Groupon voucher, or else we'd possibly have missed out on a deeelish dining experience. Planned to only stay for a main course, but we had 3 courses and thoroughly enjoyed it. Perfect sized portions meant there was no waste- which I hate- and the service was friendly and polite. I can't... More

One of our favourite restaurants in Dundee. Tomaso and Joanna present a genuinely Italian experience with a wide range of classic and modern dishes. The squid and melanzane alla parmigiana starters are as good as any I've eaten in Italy as are the wide range of veal dishes and the steaks are sublime. All the pastas are great but the... More

We visited this restaurant for our anniversary after it was recommended by a friend. We were absolutely delighted with the food,the service and the setting. The pasta al forno (house speciality) was recommended and was absolutely delicious! The lasagne was cooked to perfection and the trout dish was supreme. We have since returned with friends who were also as impressed... More

My wife and I visited this Restuarant early evening and were not disappointed as the food was excellent. The waitress who served us was polite and charming. This Restuarant is in an idle situation as this right in the city centre and a great place to unwind after a day's shopping. The Restuarant is only open from 5pm in the... More

The waitress was nice, contrary to what I have read online in other reviews. However, the food lacked seasoning - garlic, onion, etc. I found it extremely bland and was sick that night from the amount of cheese that covered everything that I ate. They could go a little lighter on the cheese and substitute some taste! The night when... More

Travelling with my husband who was on business we found this restaurant after wandering around looking for a decent place to eat which wasn't part of a chain. Pizzas were great, cheesecake was sublime and service was great. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

A party of 7, everyone thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had a selection of anti pasto ....delicious meats and salads . The Lasagna, veal ,chicken,baked aubergine and spaghetti bolognese were all very well cooked. Helpful service and a small but top quality wine list made this a 5 star review. Recommend!
