We booked a table for 4 of us at 8:30 but arrived at 8:40. They told us our table had been given away (even though we spoke to them at lunch time to confirm the booking). The weird thing was that there were clearly empty tables, which remained empty all evening, but we had to see the manager to get... More

We have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions and I have never thought to review it before? This is a lovely little restaurant with a nice friendly atmosphere. We have got in without making a reservation, but it is probably best to book, as it is quite a busy place. The menu is obviously Italian, is extensive and the... More

Second visit to this top quality establishment chosen by the in laws for an 18th birthday family meal. A large family of 20 plus were totally catered for to one side of the restaurant. Great tasting food, not one complaint from any of us says it all for them. Well done! Highly recommended :)

Visited the restaurant just before Christmas. The food was excellent and all made on the premises, much better than the large Italian chains. The house wines were also very good. The service was friendly and excellent. Overall a great experience and great value for money. Next time we are in Gloucester we will return.

Very friendly and helpful service let down by poor food. Pizza dough tasted like frozen mass produced dough, not fresh and thin.

The staff are very friendly and helpful The food is freshly cooked, I have never had a bad meal. The lunchtime menu is very good value for money. I have been using this restaurant for over 10 years, it is my favourite Italian restaurant in Gloucester.

After being let down by another restaurant we decided to come here as heard good reviews. The waitresses were really friendly and patient and couldn't do any more for you! I was so impressed by the food, the atmosphere and the staff!! I would definitely recommend this place to others and will be coming here again!! Thank you so much!!

One of the worst Italian restaurants that we have ever been to. Poorly presented tough over cooked sirloin steak that was supposed to be fillet steak in a sauce of tinned tomatoes and olives with a load of cheese dumped on the top (not the lush sauce with tomatoes and wine as described on the menu). Quite frankly it was... More
