Everything was good, except the service which was a bit slow, however we were not in a hurry and enjoyed the evening

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. Small restaurant and our only negative was that the tables were very close together. Really enjoyed the chicken wrapped in smoked salmon & my husband thoroughly enjoyed the veal.

Recommend booking a table. Arrived at the time table booked. Had to wait fifteen minutes before being asked if we would like a drink. Maybe it was the location of the table. The two girls waiting tables were very busy. The food was delicious and so well cooked. It appeared that all other tables were offered Limonceli, for some reason... More

A really good recommendation from trip advisor! Food was really good, well cooked, tastey and authentic. Only grump was the atmosphere. Even better food than the Poole restaurant rated #1. The hum of the ice cream cabinet and the piped music didn't do much in the way of ambiance but the waitress knew her stuff was very friendly and the... More

My wife and I both chose the Sea Bass for our main course which had been freshly caught from Poole Harbour. We both agreed that the taste was wonderful and the fish together with the associated vegetables were cooked to perfection. For desert we chose the Tiramisu which was delicious. The front of the looks like a lovely ice cream... More

Fantastic find - authentic Italian cuisine. Family run restaurant with attentive service - made us feel so welcome. Food was cooked freshly to order so expect a slight wait for this - well worth it! Simplistic dining area but clean and comfortable. The chef/owner is on hand to answer any questions and is very involved in front of house. We... More

I read about this Italian restaurant online as we were going to visit Poole Quay for the summer breeze event and wanted to eat before. It isn't large inside but the staff are so friendly and the food was excellent. We ordered pesto tagliatelle and asked for chicken on it as well which we were told was absolutely fine. Didn't...
