Good for a night out with friends!

Went with friends for a birthday party and had a great time. As there was a lot of us we were seated upstairs but we were well catered for even though there was a lot of us. The food was tasty and hot and my pasta was fantastic leaving us all stuffed when we left.

After an evening strolling along the quay looking at the VW campers we came by accident to stop at this Italian restaurant. The staff were very attentive and helpful suggesting the local seafood as starters and/or mains, so we choose scallops and mussels to start followed by a pizza and monk fish ravioli, the food was delicious we were not...

We were made very welcome when we arrived. We were a party of 7. However, as my wife and I weren't very hungry we shared a Hawaian Pizza, which was very tasty but the outside crust was very hard and we ended up leaving that part. A couple of our friends chose from the "Specials" Menu and were very happy... More

We chose this Italian from a great choice because of the frontage and local nature of the menu. We were not disappointed and they even made a bespoke dish for us as we fancied a mix of 2 dishes.

Wandered into here three weeks ago on spec and had a really wonderful surprise. Great food, fantastically friendly and welcoming staff, a really happy buzz to the place. The two children with us (12 and 13) loved the food too. I wouldn't hesitate recommending it to anyone and will definitely head in here again when we are next in Poole.

We ate at this restaurant tonight and I felt compelled to write something. I had the best Fillet Steak I have even eaten ( and trust me i'm fussy), the food was amazing and the services was delivered perfectly. I would recommend this to everyone, very good quality Italian.
