We had a family lunch here. The service was friendly, helpful and efficient and the food was excellent. (Try the Chicken Romagna.) My only criticism is that while marble topped tables and tiled floors are great in Italy, on a cold, wet day in Dundee it felt a bit chilly

The service is always good and pleasant and the food nice but it is always the same. The cooking smells do stick to your clothes though and they don't like being to,d about it!

Had dinner here a few months ago and my partner had steak. It was grey and tasteless. At the end of the meal, after having to argue with the waiter, the steak was taken off the menu with much muttering and dirty looks. We were then almost dragged into the kitchen, told to mind the dirt which had just been... More

This little restaurant is excellent value for money. The food is good: I had the aubergine parmigiana and my friends had the bean stew. It had a good range of vegetarian as well as meat options. It is attractively furnished in outside cafe style. Service was efficient and the food was well presented. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed. No... More

What a great place. It's very clean and tastefully decorated. I ordered a coffee and a 4 cheese pizza, which cost a total of around £12. The coffee was great but the piza was superb. It was much larger than I expected, the based seemed to be handmade and it tasted great.

Just fantastic. Best pizza and they do takeaway. New on the site of Perth airport right next to sky lodge. Really friendly owner, fabulous food, great ambiance and you can just come for a drink - if you can resist the food! Go now before they get booked out. Highly recommended for authentic Italian food and great hospitality.

Went for lunch. Nice choice of food on menu but 2 out of 3 starters on menu were unavailable. Only 1 portion of soup left (at 1:30pm!). When soup arrived there was only half a bowl and it was so thin and bland that we concluded it had been watered down to make it go further! Spicy meatball dish was... More
