On the day the usual lovely singing waiter was not there and the other waiters/waitresses were not anywhere as efficient or friendly. When our steaks arrived my steak and the steak of one other girl next to me was... More

I have only had lunch here, and the singing waiter was good fun. The food is good value, definitely worth a try

this restaurant is pretty much hit or miss. sometimes it's excellent, lovely tasty pasta dishes and sometimes we leave very disappointed. some of the staff are annoying and overly intrusive, one of the waitresses told my partner he was boring for choosing the margarita pizza and forced him to make another choice. Then the owner came over to comment on... More

A cosy,intimate restaurant located in the centre of town. Friendly staff and a good menu with plenty to choose from. Their "famous" meatballs were delicious. The food was great,served piping hot, and was great value for money. Not a great drink selection however. Will definitely return.

It was our daughter's birthday dinner and we had heard great reports about this restaurant and was so much looking forward to our meal. However, left rather disappointed! Standard of food was good but very expensive for the portion size. Seafood starter had one muscle and a few bits of baby squid. Lasagne came only with a couple of bits... More

I have been to Inverness a couple of times and tried to eat here without a booking unsuccessfully. Booked ahead this time and was looking forward to an authentic Italian meal. It almost was, but the service and some other elements let it down slightly. We were seated quickly and the drink order was taken. The menu is quite varied,... More

Service ok. Decor tacky. Food was quite good and of a high standard. King Prawn Linguine had a single prawn sliced into pieces which although tasty was a let down.
