I have written numerous reviews for this place so now only feel compelled to write one when there is something different to say. Yet again I am amazed at the continually changing menu that reflects what is both seasonal and local. For starter I enjoyed prawns in a Catalan sauce of paprika, wine, garlic and chilli. Plump prawns cooked properly.... More

The food was excellent but badly let down by the truly awful service. Firstly, despite booking, told credit card machine not available as changing banks. What rubbish and why not pre warn on phone. Waiters awful didn't know menu or what sauces were available. Hid in back room and never available when needed. Had to ask for everything including cutlery... More

The menu is much rationalized since our last visit and the staff are completely different, whereas before it was authentic Italian it now appears to have changed hands. The staff are not as knowledgeable and the dishes we had were bland with little taste. The lady who served us appeared not to know the difference between linguine and penne pasta... More

Went as a group of eleven on golf tour. We had been recommended by a local. Our first impressions were not great. After ordering beers, some served in Pepsi glasses, we were told credit cards were not accepted and advised where the nearest cashpoint was. The temporary wine list had I think 3 reds and 3 whites. Nonetheless we stuck... More

Every time I go to this restaurant I ask myself why I don't eat here more often. I went last night. A three course meal of interesting flavours, and the bill staggeringly small. The front of house has often been dodgy here, last night the waitress was great and the waiter a bit clueless. The wine list is small, and... More

We were staying overnight in Scarborough and found this little restaurant just down the road from the Premier Inn. Staff were very efficient and friendly and had a lovely meal. Great that they weren't doing the usual piazza and pasta. We were full but decided to share the desert of chocolate cake which was lovely. If only I knew the... More
