Booked on-line. Got a confirmation email the following day. Arrived at 8pm to a packed restaurant and was greeted and seated within minutes. Ordered some of their house white wine which was very nice. Ordered our meals. Chatted to people around us. The first course arrived after a very acceptable delay (freshly cooked food isn't instant). I had mussels which... More

Pizza & pasta are nice and reasonably priced, but that's about it - anything more adventurous is not so great in my experience. I tried saltimbocca but that was pretty disappointing. Service very variable: friendly and attentive one day, desultory and slow the next when, we suspect, il padrone was not there...

Saturday evening and it was quite busy with a steady flow of patrons. it is very eclectic in decor with a strange range of imitation fire places, including one outside the toilet and a beautiful piano squeezed in by the bar - nothing to make you feel as if you are in an Italian restaurant. We had 3 Lasagnes and... More

Great place. The food is superb as is the atmosphere. One of the things I like is this that this isn't trying to be something it's not. This is a proper Italian run by Italians unlike some other high street names with big chains behind them. I have read some of the other reviews complaining about slow service and disagree... More

Went with a work colleague on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant had a few tables in, but wasn’t overly busy, so we were offered our choice of places to sit. The staff were friendly and the menu not too varied – quality not quantity at this place! I ordered the Spaghetti carbonara and my colleague had the steak, requested as... More

We visited this lovely restaurant by chance on route to Gatwick Airport. All of us (4) had different staters, mains and deserts and all were delicious and enjoyed with Sicilian wine and beer. The service was amazing and the banter with the waiters made the evening. Great atmosphere and great fun. We would thoroughly recommend it.

This restaurant is a real gem in crawley. It really brings the atmosphere of Italy to Crawley. The food is really good and the service is excellent. I have been here several times on dates with my girlfriend and the atmosphere is perfect for both dates and meals out with friends. A great find!

We recently travelled from Gatwick airport on holiday and as it was my birthday the day before we went we decided to spend the day in Crawley and stay overnight at a hotel. We stumbled upon this restaurant and had some dinner and all I can say is I wish we lived closer! The restaurant looks the part and has... More
