There were good recommendations from the staff as to what to order which was helpful. We love Italian food and will definitely go again.

Had a table booked for 7 tonight (28/7) for a mid week treat. Served exceptionally well by both members of staff. The food (starters, main & desserts) were delicious. We opted for the lobster special for our mains, which was delicious but could have done with some lobster picks to get at all the meat :-). Emma had the tiramisu... More

As part of my hen weekend we hired the entire restaurant and from start to finish nothing was too much trouble for the helpful and friendly staff. They allowed us to decorate the restaurant, play our own music and to pick from a menu on the night, despite there being approximately 45 of us. We were informed that the Head... More

We dropped in on spec while passing through Taunton and enjoyed the meal very much. The service was attentive and the staff were helpful. My kids (10 and 8) loved their pizzas and clearly felt relaxed and welcomed. I had potato gnocchi with gorgonzola and pear, and found it very tasty. The garlic bread and side salad were right on...

Disappointing and expensive for the served meal, lasagna... The insipid taste, the poor hard cured ham and "English salad" with a cheap dried mozzarella and a later served olive oil was very not Italian... Expensive house wine for the quality and quantity... Nice bread served but after requested order, excellent espresso and exaggerated attention from staff. Very poor decorated restaurant,... More

We enjoyed a very special evening, the food was authentic Italian / Sicilian. The atmosphere was warm, welcoming and fun with a sense of a family run restaurant that deserves to be recognised for their genuine hospitality and warmth. We enjoyed 3 delicious courses and lots of laughs. We will definitely be back to try more of the menu and... More

Get takeaway from here a lot, cheaper and better than any chain plastic pizza, just have to go pick it up. My wife enjoys the pasta and other dishes too. Decor is appropriate but a little tired, not a real issue when the food is great though.
