Food as good as in Italy with authentic soups. Pasts dishes a belly buster. Only one gripe and this would not happen in the summer but as first time customers we were given a table in the direct line of the icy blasts from the door each time it opened. Possibly we should have asked to be moved. Good atmosphere... More

Both our meals were very good , but specifically the steak which was a rump steak in a brandy and mustard sauce.We could glance across and see the food being cooked in the kitchen and also notice how clean everything was throughout the restaurant. It was a busy evening for the chefs and waitresses but we received good service throughout... More

Visited this restaurant on holiday as part of it's Gourmet Society promotion. It was good to see the food being cooked in the kitchen and also the welcoming Italian colours decoration and overall feel of the place. It was a busy evening for the chef and waitress but we were well looked after and enjoyed the 3 courses we had.

We loved the food and the service was good, but the tables were a joke. A table for two just holds your plate and a drink, but we had to put our side dishes on the next table. Had the restaurant been fully occupied I do not know what we could have done. Somewhat spoiled the evening. Had it not... More

We have visited Sidmouth for many years but this was the first time we had been to this restaurant. I would highly recommend it. The staff were very welcoming and friendly, excellent food and a real good atmosphere. We shall definitely visit again when we are in the area

Having been here 12 years ago and suffered one of the worst meals ever this was a belated second chance! What a great little place it is now. Totally different; the atmosphere was excellent and buzzy, food was all fab except for the over gelatinous panacotta and the staff were friendly and largely on the ball (white wine delivered without...

We have eaten here many times and consistently are impressed with the quality and quantity of the food. Being a member of "tastecard" means that the value for money is incredible! Would pay the very reasonable full-price anyway but this just keeps us coming back for more. As well as this, I am gluten free and they could not be... More

As a visitor staying in Sidmouth, I desired some Italian flavours and knowing that my Wife & Son also enjoy Italian meals we decided to go for a take away option. We chose Tomato and Basil Pasta dishes and cheesy garlic bread. This was a tasty choice but was told not normally on the take out menu. So, if I... More
