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...

Our first visit to this long-standing restaurant that we have just never been to! It won't be the last... The food was fresh, authentic and absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great despite it being a fairly small place. Even though you are sitting quite close to the next table it doesn't feel like you're invading other folks space. we will... More

We love eating here. The food particularly pasta, veal dishes and squid are so tasty and beautifully prepared by Tomaso. His wife Joanna runs front of house and you always receive excellent service and a warm welcome. A firm favourite in the centre of Dundee.

We ate (unreserved) here about 7.3o on 19th June. Plenty of room, so my manservant and I were able to have a table for four, though it did fill up soon. Anyway I started with Insalata Caprese, very, very fresh and cool, and simply delicious. Jeeves had the traditional onion soup which he said was "Exquisite". I then had the... More

Initially I was reminded of Italian restaurants of the 70's and 80's when I entered this restaurant. Rather dated pictures of Italy lined the walls and slightly corny Italian music was playing, and the pleasant waitress was Polish! However, do not be deterred by this! There are the usual antipastos, pastas etc and a good selection of wines and drinks.... More
