Went with my wife and son due to hunger pangs after shopping in the Lanes. My gosh, appetite assumed hyperventilate position and ended up really really satisfied as a truly gastronomical Italiano! The chef reads your taste like the fluency and conviviality of a soothing satisfaction. Bienvenuto!

Taken to out seats and were very impressed it was out the way of other people I. The restaurant just a quiet... More

I had been told this restaurant had the most authentic Italian in Carlisle and I was not disappointed. I chose the salmon pasta which was served within 5 minutes of ordering, my partner went for a pizza and the pastry was fluffy and crisp (he is very picky). To say the place is romantic is a complete under statement, it's... More

I have visited here many times and have loved the service, food and ambience, however on this occasion it was very disappointing. When we arrived there was no alcohol being served as shown by a notice on the door. Our pre booked table had not been booked, so we had to wait until we got some alcohol from the nearest... More

We needed a meal fairly quickly before a concert at the Cathedral. The restaurant was cosy and warm and the service was friendly. Unfortunately the pizza base was not properly cooked. As we were in a hurry we didn't complain, but really, if an Italian restaurant can't get the pizza base right then it's a poor show. Disappointing I'm afraid.

The first thing that struck me as I walked into the restaurant with my partner was the atmosphere. A cosy Italian which was buzzing with people, but not too loud. We shared a garlic pizza to start with which was lovely, nice and garlicy! I then had the tortellini alla panna, and my partner had the pizza mauro, both of... More

Having been here before with a large group, this visit was disappointing. We had to ask for serving spoons, drinking glasses etc. Food, although nicely presented, was Luke warm. Service seemed a bit disorganised. What a shame.l

Strange garlic bread, thick bread soaked in butter and covered in rosemary. Sizzling beef special made us ill. Won't go back
