Great lunch

Popped up to Carlisle for lunch and found this place. What a treat! I had a lovely pizza and OH enjoyed very nice pasta. Desserts are much nicer than the slightly boring menu suggests! Well worth trying the range of ice creams :-) Definitely one to return to.

Couldn't fault a thing. Food came out nice and fast service was good (made sure all the drinks were topped up) I've never been here before but I'll defiantly be returning :)

Called in here after the Christmas lights switch on and took advantage of the Happy Hour offer. It was nice to see that this is not restricted to Mon-Thu like some restaurants. The service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious

I had the vegetarian pizza and found it very disappointing. A selection of random veg including big pieces of hard onion on top of a regular pizza. No flavouring or herbs to the veg leaving it tasting very bland.

Can't fault it, food was lovely. Great amount of choice and quiet atmosphere. Staff could cheer up a smidge, but nobody wants to be at work I guess.

Visited with friends one busy Saturday in October. Had my favourite vegetarian cannelloni, cheesy garlic bread and ice cream. Each course was tasty and portion sizes were good. Would recommend they add homemade ice cream on the menu. Will be back soon and would recommend to everyone.

There are no words for this place! What a beautiful well run business!! I have been many times over the years and food has never faulted a thing! Not once!! I would recommend this restaurant over and over again! Only thing I would say is more tables needed as extremely hard to get a table on a weekend

This is the third time I have visited this italian restaurant. As usual the meal was delicious. It is a small restaurant and has a lovely atmosphere. I asked who the chef was and they said he was Italian so that is why the food is so good. They also have happy hours which we took advantage of. Very friendly... More
