Was looking forward to sampling the lasagne after reading glowing reviews, and yes, it was roasting hot, tasty enough, and filling - but personally I prefer it to have more of a beefy meaty kick, and more garlic and seasoning.It was just too bland and "safe" for me - and partner said the same about the spaghetti carbonara.Fine fare -...

There's nothing exceptional about this place but there's nothing too negative to say either. It's just an average eatery in need of some upgrading and cleaning. It's an old place in Dundee which has kept all original decor by the looks of it which is fine but a lick of paint and cleaning of ornaments and light fittings wouldn't go... More

A friend had booked the restaurant as we all like Italian food. When we went in (at 19.30) it was busy and we were immediately shown to our reserved table. Drinks were sorted fairly promptly and we found the house red and white wines to be good. The food and service were a mixed bag however! My breaded mushrooms stuffed... More

From the outside, this little restaurant looks a bit like just another pizza parlour but don't be fooled. We booked a table for 7.30 and the place filled up pretty quickly ( it is small but comfortable inside). My hubbie started with bruschetta. 4 big slices and very nice but could have used more basil for his taste. I had... More

We have travelled extensively in Italy including Sorrento, the Amalfi coast, Sicily, Sardinia, Florence, Verona, Venice etc and this food was authentic, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening dinner at this restaurant yesterday. The service was excellent as well as the food. Excellent. Thank you

Cycled 75 miles prior to visiting here so had a good appetite! Had a great 3 course dinner and a carafe of house red which was great. Will definitely visit again when in Dundee...
